The Mac Pro is obviously a more powerful machine. It won't take as long to render on that machine, that is a given.

It has never taken me hours to render out on my PowerBook (G4 1.67Ghz, 2 GB RAM, 128MB graphics running AE 7.0 Pro), no matter how long the project was.

When you have 3D layers, it will take longer, but it shouldn't take 4 hours for :30 worth of a project. What else did you have running at the time it was rendering out? What compression did you use? Animation is going to take a long time. Did you use the same compression on the work machines?
How many layers were there? Did you maybe check/uncheck any for the various renders?
