Apologies, I guess I should have checked that before replying and 
exposing my ignorance.  Still, I'll wager you installed the one host 
with a newer spin cd that included the updated kernel.  You can 
definitely manually install the newer kernel,  (without looking up the 
exact package name, I would just use synaptic, or GUI of choice, to fin it.)

But that's probably a "If it ain't broke" project.  Might as well wait 
until the update to 14.04.
