Hi :) 

None of those will play games well, unless you add ANOTHER 1000 Euros to your budget...

All the best Brett :)

i dont want a desktop replacement, i need something close to an ultrabook and i dont have the money for that. i need something with good windows 8 experience and decent gaming for a year atleast untill i buy a desktop

If you want to play these games on high, you'll need to invest in stronger laptops (most ultrabooks aren't designed for gaming, so they don't handle it all that well).

Based on what you posted, I'd say the Lenovo y400 with 650m SLI is your best bet, although it's been my experience that Asus generally has better quality builds.
