Are you only wanting this for XIV? If so a laptop is a very bad investment, for ANY single game. Having said that, for the price, anything that comes with a 610m... you are almost better off with the onboard Intel or AMD GPU except that their drivers usually suck.
What's your budget? Can you save up a few weeks or a month or two to increase it?
Maybe this isn't the same for everyone, but for me a laptop is something that I buy that can do everything I need with a graphical comprimise... however it's also the least recurring purchase I make. I upgrade my consoles almost every generation (to include handhelds), I upgrade my PC annually (not totally, but usually a hard drive here, a GPU there, a monitor or keyboard whatever...), I run my laptops until they die. I got 8 years off the second to last one, I paid almost 3K for it. The previous laptop, I went cheap... It still does internet duty and extremely light gaming for the wife, but it's been 2 years and it's going to be replaced shortly... I paid $1,100 for it. The curent laptop I could have got for under 1,100 but I added a few things like a BluRay player (I buy a lot of movies when I'm deployed and I'd prefer to avoid buying movies twice), I expect it to last 10 years if it doesn't die. I didn't expect any of the above to play games released after 2 years of purchasing them. The first one played games pretty well for about 5 years, the second one was lucky to play games on day 1, the current one plays everything except XIV on high settings. I'm not bragging, I never bought Alienware or whatever the cool brand was, I'm just trying to help you think about your purchase.
If a badass game comes out a year from now, and you can't play it because you tried to save 100 bones, you'll kick yourself. Then again, anything you buy that can't play something down the road, you won't be happy... but the longer that road is until you can't play things the way you want to play them, the better you will feel about your purchase.
*EDIT* For current engine XI you want a 7200 rpm HDD minimum, especially if coupled with a crap GPU
