if you put them into /var/cache/apt/archive then in synaptic click
'reload', 'mark updates' and 'apply'. it should check the cache and
only download things that are needed.

alternativly (usefull if the second pc does not have a network
connection): double click on the deb files, and gdebi will install them
for you.

or: use

    dpkg -i *.deb
