For Autocad, you need a minimum of 8 GBs of RAM, and i7 CPU (i5 will also suffice), and a 17" screen. The large screen is useful for the toolbars in Autocad, and also for drawing three different views of the object (building, bridge, machine, etc.).
A hard disk 350 GBs or higher will be adequate. You can always store .dwg files on an external drive. For SSD, a 100 GBs SSD will be ok (along with the external hard disk).
