Lenovo Y410p - Is it still good for casual gaming at its price bracket?

I'm looking for a laptop that would be good value (or, least-bad value) to do casual gaming - various Blizzard games, etc. For work I use a Mac laptop but it's been choking, whereas "as a visually orientated" person I really enjoy detailed graphics and high framerates. The Y410p fits my budget great, but I just wanted to see if there are any opinions or alternative suggestions, before I bite the bullet! Thanks.
Living in Canada, so based off of their site here:
Lenovo Y410p 59405110
$969.00
Intel Core i7-4700MQ 3.40GHz 1600Mhz 6MB
NVIDIA GeForce GT755M GDDR5 2GB
12.0GB PC3-12800 DDR3L SDRAM 1600 MHz
1TB 5400 RPM + 24GB SSD

Thanks, that's a good point. From the Laptop Graphics Card listing here (http://www.notebookcheck.net/Computer-Games-on-Laptop-G...), the fps rating seems to be within a safe margin, e.g. for WoW it would be lie within 26–31 fps.

Would it be better value to stay, or should I look for something higher on the rankings?
