Virtual Machine?

By Tyharo ·
I have been reading up on virtual machines after my uncle recommended that I turn my laptop into one. Although I'm still researching, i would like to know what this would do to my laptop. I have three total laptops up and running, two on linux and an my new laptop on windows 7. I'm going to mess around and try to get the feel of what exactly a virtual machine does by trying it on an older laptop. I was recommended to try it on my new one but I'm don't want to mess my new laptop up. If I do end up making my new laptop into a virtual machine would it slow the computer down? And since the laptop is a gaming laptop, would i notice drops in game performance?
Notice that i am still reading about Virtual machines, so I'm really new to the idea of it. Any tips or recommendations would be much obliged.
