Would this laptop be able to run skyrim fairly well?

Laptops will never match decked out desktops, of course, but you should have no problems with that rig.

Of course. I however need something a bit more mobile than a desktop otherwise I would've gone ahead and built one :)

I understand. :)

 

The one you linked should be able to handle pretty much anything skyrim can throw

My laptop has a GTX 860M, 16GB ram/4GB vram and I can run the game in Ultra with highly tweaked Skyrim INI, Verdant Grasses, parallax ground textures and a mod that I use to spawn 10 followers at populated locations or enemy battles.  Throw in a performance ENB and the FPS is reasonable (average = 45), but Quality or Extreme ENBs will drop the FPS (average = 15), playable, but not buttery smooth.

 

Since you are set on getting a gaming laptop, your next important investment (emphasis on important) is a cooling mat or a portable fan or both.

I have a portable fan stand, but if I'm spending this much on a gaming laptop I might as well get something a bit better down the line :)
