MSI GT683R-242US good for new games?

I've been searching for a gaming laptop lately. I've never owned a gaming laptop because I have a PS3 but I want to get into gaming on the PC. I was going to buy an alienware M17x R3 and upgrade the graphics and RAM but it would stretch my budget quite a bit(Trying to spend 1000-1500). I was looking for a less costly laptop and I found the MSI GT683R-242US. It seems to be a great laptop and it's not too expensive. Since it has 1 TB hard drive, lots of RAM, etc. I thought it would be much more popular than the M17x for gaming but it isn't. I am worried if I buy the MSI it won't play games I like (just cause 2, BF3, TES:Skyrim, WoW, etc.) as well as the M17 R3. Could someone explain how well the M17 would run new games like Battlefield 3 compared to the M17 R3 and which I should buy if not some other laptop I haven't heard of. Thanks a bunch in advance and sorry for the lengthly post!
