What's the average boot time you guys get for this machine?

The last boot time was 2:51 minutes.
Out of the box on Friday 8/4/17, the fans took off at full speed and the Alienware logo lit up as well as the keyboard and that was it for about 3 to 4 minutes, then the OS finally loaded.
OK I thought maybe this is just because it's the first time turning it on.
Never gave it much thought for awhile then I noticed it seem to boot up slow.
So I timed it and I was getting around 45 second boot times on a restart and about 22 seconds from cold start.
Is this normal for one of these machines?
The last Alienware I had about 4 years ago booted up in like 12 seconds.
Now it's taking it well over 2 minutes from a restart and from a cold start this time it took 28 seconds.
And I have had it in the box ( because I'm returning it) for a couple days and did the same thing it did when I first turned it on the very first time. Fans went full force and nothing loaded for a few minutes.

So what is the average boot times some of you are getting?
I've got the i5, 16GB RAM, 512GB M.2
