Can you provide a link to the exact laptop as there seem to be various M15X models? Is it the 9659?

I am assuming you mean Battlefield 3 and yes you should be able to play that on high settings.

You'll be able to run it. Not very well at a resolution of 1920x1080 and especially not at high settings.
