Since torrent files can be riddled with viruses, it's quite possible you've picked one up at some point.

Download Malwarebytes and see if it detects anything

Did your 'old PC' run Windows 10? If not, it's not an 'apples to apples' comparison. We also have no idea which AV you're running or what programs you've installed that may be sucking the bandwidth out of your system. Your laptop is likely loaded with Dell crapware too. A thorough housecleaning & wise software choices might perk things up significantly.

On the task manager, check what is running at the time you download.
In the network performance, anything downloading while you are not downloading? Updates of any kind?

All above, plus you may want to try downloading the latest Chipset Driver and any NIC driver for your new system from the Dell web site to make sure that you have the latest.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

You can use ccleaner free version to clean out junk and then manage your start up programs but first you should evaluate all of the stuff on it to see what you need to uninstall and what has the option to not start with Windows in their set up/tools on the ones you decide to keep. Google what you are not sure of.
Also many computers come with a trial version of an antivirus program. Uninstall these but the typical uninstall often does not remove them completely, you need to go to their site and find their uninstaller for download (often hidden) and use that. Then navigate to the program folder for it and delete anything left behind. This applies also to any antivirus program you may have tried and removed. After this you can run the registry cleaner in ccleaner and see if it picks up any remaining registry entries from these programs that are getting in the way.
