Answers :

Yes this can be a power issue since you have 2 computers with the same problem, if you want to really test it you plug the 2 computers on another power outlet and check if you will still hear that sound if not so we're sure that its a power issue already...
It seems to me that the 2 machines are getting the same signal that is causing the high pitch. It is normal, the both computers do the same start up process.
