    Well here is another problem

    AutoCad 2017 requirements Digitizer WINTAB support

    CF52 does not have a digitizer.
    CF19 does but not enough resolution.
    Toughpad tablet may work.

    Do you have a separate digitizer?

    I checked an AutoCad forum to get some real world requirements.
    As I expected the requirements listed on Autocad page are ridiculously slow.
    I feel your budget is going to get you a complete ready to go CF52 mk2 Core2Duo with an ATI card. If you are really lucky, you can score a CF52mk3 i5 with ATI graphics.
    The latest Autocad is going to be slow on either of those.

    This is a post on that forum for Autocad 2015..I am sure 2017 will need more.

    Hello

    Welcome to the Autodesk/AutoCAD Forums !

    1) For AutoCAD & Inventor, you must have a PC/Notebook with 16 Gb Ram !

    Maybe more, if you plan to create/design large 3D models ...


    2) For Notebook or NOT, the basic speed of your processor (4 cores is ENOUGH) must be the FASTEST possible ... depending on your budget !

    For a Notebook, please the basic speed has to be a minimum of 2.4-2.8 Ghz with a Turbo Mode 3.0-3.6 Ghz

    For others PCs, the basic speed has to be a minimum of 3.4-3.6 Ghz ...


    3) A correct graphic card with its OWN memeory (2 GB is OK)


    4) If possible a SSD because it's very comfortable ...

    Perhaps the CF-C2 would also be a consideration. Less rugged but faster processor and built-in digitizer.
