I'm not that ''in the know'' when it comes to PC. I would like to get a gaming laptop, mainly for Minecraft, Steam, and Skype. But what is keeping me from investing is the hassle it is keeping up with a PC. Viruses, hacks, defrag, and all those issues I always see happening to PC gamers where the game just crashes and all you see are all these numbers and stuff. All these are the general idea why I still find console gaming best. Simple and easy, just get on and play.

Still, I would like to give PC gaming a try. Any advice for me on any of my stated points?

Thanks in advance.

I'm sure you would. You're going to have to wait before it's created first.

Install a decent antivirus program.
If someone is cheating online, report the user or change servers.
Windows will automatically defrag your hard drives.
The only time I had a game crash is when I was overclocking.

I wouldn't bother, If you think console gaming is best then stick with that.

Get some clever friend to make you a gamer PC, and ask us or him any questions you might have. We're here to help! Except that 75% of gamefaqs people hates you. It's just a general rule, no offense and it's nothing personal.

The "Game" in your list has very low requirements.
Go ahead and buy a cheap netbook.
