Default Good Gaming Laptop for 1k?

Hello i was just wondering if this was a good gaming laptop for 999$. I plan to play WoW, CS Source, and some Battlefield. Would this laptop play these games effectively?

yes it will play all those games, and it should be able to play css with full settings + 2xAA on and still give you 60-100 fps. or at least i think it will.
