Sometimes it takes a long time, it depends how much data is being written.
To be honest, 35 minutes does seem like a long time, and you may want to upgrade to a faster drive - but personally I would do a check to make sure that the burnt disk is 100% correct, and if it is, I would leave it.
If you burn disks frequently, you may want to change for a faster drive. Mind you, I am not sure you can get faster in a laptop.
