I need a laptop to play minecraft with. My budget is $400, and Id prefer Windows 8.1+. I currently have a bad laptop for minecraft, very laggy. Anyone know a lag free minecraft laptop?

Lots of laptops can play Minecraft, but past low settings and without a mod to lower settings you will need to go over your budget. $400 will get you either a used system (look for one with an 840m video card), or a basic office use system.
 
Here are system requirements for Minecraft. You want "no lag", so let's see "Recommended":
Recommended Requirements:

CPU: Intel Core i3 or AMD Athlon II (K10) 2.8 GHz
RAM: 4GB
GPU: GeForce 2xx Series or AMD Radeon HD 5xxx Series (Excluding Integrated Chipsets) with OpenGL 3.3
HDD: 1GB
Latest release of Java 8 from java.com
i3 CPU and discrete graphics will push you beyond $400 for laptop...
