When I power up my MBP 13 inch 2011 model why do hear my optical drive first make a noise and then hear my hard drive start up second? thanks

Because that's how it works. It does that. Normal.

I checked out my computer today and the Apple Reseller said this was not normal making this noise. I left it there for further consultation.

Hope you deleted the porn first...

Me, I have lots of pictures of my wife , so I don't ever send a Mac in for servicing without swapping the hard drive first with one that has had a clean install and zeroed free space.

Especially after the Edison Chen incident.

Too bad. It is. That's how all Macs start up. They check for a disc in the ODD first, then they boot to the HDD. He didn't lie, he was just completely wrong.

On SOME newer models, you can stop it from doing that. Not reliably, but sometimes.

Thanks for your honesty in this matter.
