"im concerned because my sisters laptop has only the avg free antivirus"

I'll take AVG free over the bloated crap being offered by Symantec/Norton or McAfee any day. Regardless, whatever you do on your own laptop has nothing to do with your sister's laptop.

Is your new laptop the Satellite e105-s1402? If you bought it for gaming, expect to be disappointed.

Well there is possibilities that it might happen because you two are sharing some files and you are connected on a single router even though it's wire less. So It'll be the best to have an Anti Virus on each computers. Check the site like below me they might help for further in formation.

What file sharing will there be? The OP stated "the two computers will not be in a network".

And how is this related to gaming anyway?

Hopefully you're correct. The XPS 16 is more of a business notebook than a gamer.
