If it weren't two computers, cooling would have been the first thing to
spring to mind (it could still be, if you're in a hot environment).
Things like fans and heatsinks gunked up with fluff stops them working
right, and some systems will slow the CPU down to stop it burning out.

The other thing that springs to mind with two computers, is whether
you've been compromised.  You could check for a rootkit, but this is
just a wild stab in the dark.

Taking minutes to finish booting could also point the finger at name
resolution not working, if you have services that need to know their
network addresses.
