1 week purchased Mac mini slow to boot with preinstalled mavericks.

I've just purchased a mac mini 2.5Ghz with Mavericks preinstalled. I've added 8GB ram so it has 10gb. Apart from that everything else is standard. I've moved from a iMac with Lion and it was much faster to boot up. The mac mini takes about 1.5 - 2 mi

I've just purchased a mac mini 2.5Ghz with Mavericks preinstalled. I've added 8GB ram so it has 10gb. Apart from that everything else is standard. I've moved from a iMac with Lion and it was much faster to boot up. The mac mini takes about 1.5 - 2 minutes to get to the login screen. I'm thinking an SSD will help but I don't want to pay for one just yet.
When i'm logged in, everything runs fine. I've only had one strange issue. I've had this mac mini for a week and I've looked through suggestions boards, I will try the sudo commands that have been referenced in  the communities. But I am feeling like mavericks is the Windows equivalent of Vista. I understand that there hasn't been updates to the Mac mini hardware wise for sometime, but in the past with other upgrades I've done (but with other models) there haven't been any issues like these ones with boot times.
I am interested to see if other mac mini users also have these issues - it seems more to be a mavericks issue. I am just a bit flabbergasted that I never even though this could be a problem.

Thanks, I think I really need to get an SSD - been reading alot in the last 30 minutes about the improvement. For now I will put up with it because I don't want to spend the money just yet. I'm pretty darn pleased with my mac mini i'll be gutted if they remove these from the line up!!!
