Does it run with the same settings and resolution? Do both laptops have the same speed RAM? Does one laptop have a better cooling system than the other?

I think this is it: the dual core CPU actually runs at 2.9 GHz and boosts up to 3.5. The second CPU has lower clocks. In the settings you are using, it probably is not able to take advantage of the extra cores most of the time, leading to slower performance.
