Hey guys, I've been looking for quite some time, and it's been pretty difficult.
These are what he wants specifically: touch screen, mobile, 14'' screen or less, DVD R/RW Drive, $600 or less.

The best I've come up with is this customized hp laptop:

sparkling black
Windows 8 64
AMD Quad-Core A6-5200 Processor + 1GB AMD Radeon™ HD 8670M Discrete
14.0-inch diagonal HD BrightView LED-backlit Display (1366x768)
8GB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm)
750GB 5400 rpm Hard Drive
No Additional Office Software
FREE Norton Internet Security™ - 15 Months
4 Cell Lithium Ion Battery
SuperMulti 8X DVD +/- R/RW with Double Layer Support
Standard Keyboard (black)
Webcam and Microphone (Sparkling Black)
802.11b/g/n WLAN [1x1]

This comes out to $599.99. This laptop will be used for business, internet, email, video watching.

The reason the configuration has a discrete GPU is b/c the current HP deal is $100 off a $699.99 laptop.

I'm unsure about the AMD processor. I'm sure it will suffice for my dad, but I'm not 100% sure.

Any thoughts or suggestions? Or any other good deals? Or is this $600 laptop a decent bang for the buck?

Thanks
