My desktop computer is a couple of years old.  It serves me well for what I do.  I just got a new laptop.  In terms of hardware, the laptop is much different.  The desktop is a quad-core AMD 900 series with an ATI 4500 series gpu running backtrack 5r3.  It has 8GB of memory and standard SATA drives.  The laptop is an Intel i7 cpu, with SSD drive, NVIDIA 660M gpu, and 8GB memory running backbox 3.  The internal SATA drive is slow as fuck (just putting that out there).  I have the OS on the SSD drive and my home folder on the SATA drive.

Here are the specs as seen by pyrit list_cores from each along with the benchmark tests:
