Can you post the specs of the laptops?

What kind of router do you have and what are you basing your speeds off of? Normally your receiving and downloading speed is based on the card your using.

Spyware, virus, or different programs would be my first thought.

Did you test the Internet speeds objectively on both laptops using an online speed test like - The Global Broadband Speed Test?
