Video scrubbing extremely poor

Here's a video sample of the problem:

http://bit.ly/1knJhAK

 

Here are the specs of the 2 machines in the video above:

 

My PC

Intel Core i7 3770K @3.5GHz

RAM 32GBytes 1333MHz DDR3

NVIDEA GeForce GTX 660 Ti

SSD SAMSUNG 830 SERIES

 

FRIENDS LAPTOP

Intel Core i7-4900MQ Processor (Quad Core, 8M Cache, 2.8 GHz, w/HD

RAM -8GB (2x4GB) 1866MHz DDR3L -NVIDIA Quadro K2100M w/2GB

-SSDR HD 256GB

 

Why is my friends laptop by far out performing my massive PC tower??? We are using the same project & project files running of an external USB3 drive.  The footage is AVCHD. All I want is smooth scrubbing like my friend is getting on his laptop.

 

What do I need to fix this? new CPU? Does the Graphics card even play a roll in scrubbing across a timeline?

    How many hard drives are you using?

     

    Get rid of the external drive for Premiere  and use internals.

     

    Set up scratch files and internal drives properly.

    Start with some of the tips in the hardware forum.
