probably has less ram. what is in yours and his? also could be a slower hdd interface, like if he had ide, and you had sata or scsi.

or it could be in powersave mode which makes it downclock to save battery and create less heat. (which makes it run slower, but it should kick back up to full when it needs it)
Listen to my music! and random/funny videos XD
