My first guess would be a difference in time zone settings somewhere.
I'd double check the date/time and time zone settings on both the laptop & camera first.
Lr should be reading the capture date/time in the image files, so I don't believe the laptop date/time is the issue, but it doesn't hurt to check.

Once the images are imported into Lr, what's shown in the Capture Date & Capture Time fields in the metadata panel?

You could use exiftool to check the metadata in the raw file against what Lr is showing.  If you're unsure how to do that, you could post a link to one of your raw files here for somebody to take a look.
