In before the "why you getting a laptop to play mmo" obviously you have your own reasons. I take it you are going to be doing more than just gaming on the laptop.
What is your budget?

I'm going to be blunt and say "why" you might as well get a PS4 if it's just to play ff arr, it will run and look a lot better than a $400 laptop.
Perhaps Quizz can find something for you but here in Europe you won't get much for €400 let alone $400.
Laptops are definitley a possible option to play ffxiv but not for that price. if you want to spend some more money ever check : https://www.mythlogic.com/
I have one from there that can max any MMO and game easily.
You're probably looking at more like $700ish to get a laptop with ok specs for gaming.
Even then, it won't be something you can buy at best buy or walmart. Would have to pick and choose the parts and have newegg put it together for you or something.
$400 isnt gonna get you much. As people stated above you are better off getting a PS4. You really would need a dedicated video card and you arent gonna find one with a 400 dollar budget.
This is the best thing I could find on NewEgg after a quick search. Pretty sure ffxiv would still look like a slide show on it though.
You can't reason someone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into.
