So my dad wants to buy a laptop. He wants it small (11-13 inches) and he's going to use it for browsing the web, skype calls and maaaybe some 2d autocad. Any suggestions

Price range 250-350$

12.5" - 13.3" laptops are typically both ultra-portable and relatively powerful so these type of laptops generally start at around $850.

11.3" are in the realm of netbooks and they are generally in your price range. Here are two options:

Dell Inspiron 11 = $350
- Haswell generation Celeron 2955U - Lower power consumption for longer battery life.
- Touchscreen
- Windows 8
- Only 2GB of RAM, but can be upgraded to 4GB (only one RAM slot)

Acer Aspire V5-131-2629 = $320
- Slightly older Ivy Bridge generation Celeron 1007U CPU (not as power efficient as Haswell generation, but still good)
- No Touchscreen
- Windows 7
- 4GB of RAM

He really hates touchscreen laptops and I don't like him to have a Celeron processor. I'm using one right now and it's a disaster. Maybe a Core 2 Duo or i3 with a higher price (400-500$).
