I did not clock it per se..but it was VERY SLOW. It felt like 10 minutes for me. (This is in reference to using the boot dvd i created for the clean install)

As for the boot up time compared to snow leopard, Lion takes a few seconds more than Snow Leopard.

I'm using 2011 mbp with 2.2GHz quad-core i7, 8GB ram, 750GB

The boot up speed with Lion is about 20 seconds, while it was about 10 seconds with Snow Leopard.

The shutdown time is also worse, it was about 3 seconds before, and now it's about 10 seconds.

I'm glad I'm not the only one with the boot up - I was horrified by the 20 second wait. My shutdown time is still around 3 to 4 seconds. But as you said, you use the newest mbp with a quad core i7, i'm confused as to why it takes so long for you to shutdown...

I feel it's just a few more seconds but nothing outrageous.

My shut down is faster or just as fast as Snow Leopard. Of course, I always untick "Remember Windows".
