If you haven't tweaked anything, there's a ton of things you can do. Here's a good sum:

I have windows 7 on a desktop with "quick boot" on my motherboard and I never got it to boot faster than 29 seconds from the time i push the power button to the time the desktop loads. It's just normal for desktops to take that much longer. Also, you don't have a top end SSD (60GB is noticeably slower than 120GB or 240GB).

i.e. don't be worried. Still you can run "recboot" a free utility built by someone at microsoft to analyze what parts of your boot up process are the slowest.
