So I'm looking to get a new gaming laptop. It needs to handle raiding in WoW, Guild Wars 2, and FPS games like BF3 on very high to max settings. The display also needs to be 1080p. At home I will be connecting to a monitor, but I like HD on the move too :) 

Here are the comparable builds I found. Please let me know what you think, if there should be any changes, or if there are better deals out there. Thanks in advance.

Btw, remember that Any Sandy Bridge I5 and up Can Max Wow, You are looking for a strong Gpu and if you are willing to spend 1500 usd in a Laptop you can spend more in the gpu.

Gpus in order : Gtx 560m, Gtx 570m, gtx 660m , Gtx 580m , Gtx 670m , Gtx 675m.

Thanks for the response, and the alternative. I wonder if you could tell me why the other two are so bad.

More importantly, can the sandy bridge max out FPS and next generation MMO's like GW2?

Thanks.

Yes they Can Max Next Generation MMOs like GW2.

Oh okey here is why they are Bad.

1.- The Case of the Laptop they are Small and Dont have Good Airflow, that means you will be struggling with Overheating in Raids slowing your Game.

2.- They Charge You Over 50% more in the SSD Value. In the End you are Buying a 130 usd SSD for 240 USD.

3.- They Dont Tell you What Brand Of Parts they are using, You Need to Spend More money To Choose the Brand.

4.- For the Price, Those Video Cards are Way To Mainstream.

5.- They are giving you a Shitty Wireless Card and Charging you With a Premium of 100 usd for that.
