Here I have

/dev/hda7: 17.89 MB/sec (Linux EXT3)
Could you give me a reason how this is possible?
a reason for what ? the fact that the notebook performs faster than the
desktop while slower on I/O ?
No, a reason why the partition with Linux (ReiserFS or Ext3) is always slower
than the Windows partition?
Easy: Drives don't have the same speed on all tracks. The platters are
built-up from zones with different recording densities: zones near the
center of the platters have a lower recording density and hence a lower
datarate (less bits/second pass under the head). Zones at the outer
diameter have a higher recording density and a higher datarate.
