Hi.  Just something a little different.
Out of curiosity, you may want to run the following on the two machines.

Needs["Benchmarking`"]

BenchmarkReport[]

The Third test is a timing calcultion of Pi to 380,000 digits. (See botton
of report)

Maybe some of the other 15 calculations are faster ??

even the second machine are speedier in cpu frequency and have more cash and
the memory frequency.
