Do you mean that you are ordering a custom-built laptop from a supplier, or that you intend to build this machine yourself?

If you are contemplating a self - build I advise you to think long and hard, it isn't easy to put a laptop together. There are lots of off the shelf machines on the market that are more than capable of running AutoCad

I would have thought a nice large monitor screen > 21" would be a pre-requisite for CAD.

I have to agree with HB on this, you really want a super high res large monitor for Autocad.

24" full HD would be the minimum, with something like the super desirable 27" 2560x1440 Apple cinema displays as a preferred option...
