I have 1,000 in credit with dell but i'm not sure which laptop to choose that can run Final Fantasy 14 on. So far I've choosen this one:
COLORS Silver Anodized Aluminum 17.3" HD+ (900p) WLED Display edit
OPERATING SYSTEM Genuine Windows® Home Premium, 64-Bit, English edit
PROCESSOR Intel® Core™ i5-460M (2.53GHz, 4 threads, turbo boost up to 2.8Ghz, 3M cache) edit
VIDEO CARD NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 435M 1GB graphics with Optimus edit
BATTERY OPTIONS 56 WHr 6-cell Lithium Ion Primary Battery edit
MEMORY 4GB Shared Dual Channel DDR3 Memory edit
HARD DRIVE 500GB 7200 RPM SATA Hard Drive edit
WIRELESS CARDS Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 1000 edit
MOBILE CONNECTIVITY No Mobile Broadband Selected edit
OPTICAL DRIVE 8X Tray Load CD/DVD Burner (Dual Layer DVD+/-R Drive) edit
KEYBOARD Standard Keyboard - English
Will it run FF 14 ok?
I'm guessing you're going with Dell simply cause of the credit so I won't suggest a more reasonable site like iBuyPower
That PC should be able to play it fine on decent settings, but I have to ask, does it have to be a laptop? You'll get a little more for your money with a desktop plus more, and easier, upgrade options.
Looks good to me. You got a 4 core processor and 4 gb of ram so that's good.
The main concern is the graphics card. The card sounds like a newer model so it will probably be fine. Would be nice if we could find a laptop graphics comparison chart.

I can gather a mobility radeon 5870 would be better and probably MUCH more pricer. Don't confuse a mobility radeon 5870 (laptop model) with a desktop pc version radeon 5870. Generally laptop graphic cards perform worse than their desktop counterparts.
