Games I will be playing: WoW, Rift, GW2, Lotro, Neverwinter, TESO (When it comes out), LoL, WarZ.

I can't decide between these 3 laptops. If possibly, please provide me with information on the gaming performances of the laptops (need to know if they can run those games) and also the overall build quality of it. I'm looking for the best possible balance between quality and performance.

Of the three, the Samsung is the most capable for gaming. The graphics chip it has probably won't run extremely demanding games well, but the games you listed, it will run fine (just be prepared for the world of fun that is AMD drivers).

It's a good value too. The Lenovo has a better CPU but no dedicated graphics, so it won't do you much good. And the Asus has a 610M, which is actually roughly on par - if not worse - than the Intel HD 4000 graphics.
