Question about Computers & Internet
The best solution is the router....you can however connect one pc to the other via a crossover cable and 'share' the internet connection ...problem with this is you'll need to have the pc with the direct connection on all the time that you want to connect with the 2nd pc.....there is also a problem 'networking' vista and xp ....sometimes all goes to plan and everything works perfectly...other times setting it up can be quite difficult...seems to depend on configuration....the advantages of the router are that you could also have wireless as well and that setup should be easier

If you had say one desktop and one laptop I would say to buy another LAN card for the desktop and enable internet connection sharing on it for the other computer but with two laptops that might not be possible and you will need a router.
But routers are pretty cheap nowadays and you can probably find a basic 4 port router on eBay for around $20 (you don’t really need to spend the extra money on a wireless one unless of course both laptops have wireless connections then you might find that a wireless router to be pretty useful.)
But to answer your question YES you need a router since a router will take your IP address and split it up into multiple internal IP addresses and allow more that one connection to the internet that will appear as one connection to your ISP
