While those are great recommendations, I personally am waiting for the 8th gen hybrid chips to arrive. (Kaby Lake-G) (Same situation as you. Looking for a laptop that can play WoW decently, but I already have a pretty sweet desktop)
It will pack in a much more powerful processor and a built in AMD Vega M Graphics. Both will be pretty solid for 1080p 60Hz gaming, as the 8809G will be comparable to the i7 7700 and the Vega M Graphics will be AT LEAST comparable to a Radeon RX 470 but maybe slightly better as there are no benchmarks out for that yet. However the specs of the CPU are pretty identical to the 7700 so it should perform roughly the same barring thermal throttling, and with the size of the CPU/GPU shrink cooling solutions should improve greatly.
Out of those gaming laptops the Helios is hard to beat for that price. It's not perfect but it packs a lot of performance in a $1100 laptop.
