So I don't really own a fast laptop, but still I noticed the booting is slow after upgrading from 17.04 to 17.10. I have a hp pavilion Intel Core i3-4005U CPU @ 1.70GHz × 4 and 8gb ram. I tried to disable some services yet the booting is still slow.

user@user-HP-15-Notebook-PC:~$ systemd-analyze 
Startup finished in 2.673s (firmware) + 6.926s (loader) + 5.994s (kernel) +  1min 13.710s (userspace) = 1min 29.304s
