You write that you have 3 systems, but provided only two EXPLAIN ANALYZE
results. I will assume that the latter is from your laptop while the
former is from one of the badly performing systems.

Please provide information what exactly those "same versions of
everything" are. What's the PostgreSQL configuration on each system? Do
all three systems have the same configuration? Information on the
hardware wouldn't hurt either.

The row estimate of the former plan is way off (297812 estimated <-> 180
actual). Did you analyze the table recently? Maybe you need to increase
the statistics target.
