But, Ubuntu caches most of the downloaded packages under in /var/cache/apt/archives directory.

You can copy the content in /var/cache/apt/archives to another Ubuntu Computer's same location, and install the apps without downloading again.

Make surem that both computers must run the same version of Ubuntu.

To automate the entire process, you can use AptOnCD
