For some odd reason, the MacBooks/iPad/iPhone in the household has fast internet speeds but my Dell/HP laptops are sloww! I've reset the basestation a few times but it's always ends up being the same. Is there a fix/solution for this? It's driving me insane!:(

What kind of wireless radios are in your Windows laptops? Your Apple equipment is probably all 802.11n, which is generally faster than 802.11a/b/g.

My windows laptops also have 802.11a/b/g built-in. Which is why I do not understand why they would be slower?

g is not n
Also not in the 5GHz band.

The iPhone isn't 5GHz either but it is n

What OS are your PCs running?

opps, I'll double check to see what WiFi device they are using. All windows laptops are running Windows7.
