Celeron processors are really watered down compared to Pentiums, and
the laptop has less RAM, further reducing its probable performance
relative to the desktop.

As for the swap used ... the laptop's probably running battery
management software and the like in the background -- that might be
where the stuff dumped to swap is coming from.
