DNS on your laptop is broken: Emacs is trying to resolve something, probably
the FQDN to an address, or the address to an FQDN, that takes that long to
time-out.

This would be equally true of any other service that tried the same
translation, but you don't notice because little other desktop class software
does perform that check.

At a guess.
