    What I want is a laptop that I can play the following games on
    Dayz - on medium to low settings
    WOW - on low settings

    And that multiplayer san Andreas game - on low medium settings

    Don't pay that much for the Qosmio. It wasn't great when it was released, and that one is two gens old now. If it's any more than $450, it's too much, and I wouldn't even pay that.
    Look at a Clevo W350ST or Lenovo Y510p for around the same price. The performance is much better than any Mac.

    Your requirements are all over the place and minimal for the type of budget you have. You can easily get your hands on a decent gaming laptop with all the bells and whistles for under $1000. If you do go up to $1500, you should be able to get your hands on a laptop with a GTX 770/AMD HD 8970M which should allow you to play the games at maximum settings.

    Look at a custom laptop from Mythlogic/XoticPC/PowerNotebooks/GentechPC/ProStar/LPC Digital, etc.

    Ignore the laptop you have linked to.

    The cheapest laptop I could find with decent gaming performance was this one.
