Question

It can't have anything to do with the computer you used.  Any time you buy something, it is stored on SL's asset servers, not your own computer. The listing you see is essentially a table of "pointers" to storage locations in the servers.  Having said that, however, it is possible for the inventory listing that you see to get out of sync with the asset servers.  You can cure that, if it's the problem, by clearing your cache (click the "Clear Cache" button in Preferences), logging out, and then logging back in at a really vacant sim like Smith or Pooley.  When you log in, open your inventory and type anything -- the letter "A" for example) to force the asset servers to rebuild your local copy of the inventory listing.  Don't do anything while it's rebuilding.  Just go out for a cup of coffee.  When it's done, your inventory should be properly synced. 

Now, if you do that and the items are still missing, then check your Transactions log to verify that you actually bought and paid for the items and then contact the seller with that information.  If the items were copiable, you ought o be able o get a redelivery.

It does not matter what PC you buy from. Sounds like you did not recieve your purchases due to your IMs being capped. Honestly, I don't understand why people insist on buying stuff from the Marketplace when they are not logged into SL and not expect something to go wrong.

If you are not logged in to accept the items, or log in very soon after ordering them, then they get 'lost' in the system.  There is no way for in-world (scripted) vendors to tell if you've actually accepted delivery or not and, as far as I know, the marketplace can't tell either.

You ordered, the delivery-driver came around, you weren't in.  In a sane world this would be recorded and maybe it is but it doesn't pay to trust SL too far.

When you login your inventory loads from the cache on your computer, the new items would be in the cache on the other computer.

Just clear your cache on your normal PC so that your inventory loads from the LL database where all your items are stored.
