Here is a gaming desktop build in a mini-itx case that is 12"x12"x6" (about the size of two original xbox 360's sitting side by side) that will run those games at 1080p at maxed out or near maxed out, including monitor, keyboard, mouse, and windows for under $1000

You might be able to push 1080p in those games with a $1000 laptop, but you're going to have a real rough time. Is there any reason a desktop is unfeasible for you?

At best you're gonna see a 860m as a video card, and most laptops in that range have a weaker GPU than that. That's equivalent to a 650 Ti, a thoroughly midrange card that's almost 2 generations old.
