    Greetings Dr. Saurabh.

    We have been through your query:

    1. The homeopathic software Cara is no longer available. It was discontinued years ago. It has now been replaced by a software called ISIS (made by the same manufacturer - not to be confused with the terrorist organization that has risen to fame recently)
    2. Cara (was) & ISIS (is) - a 32 bit software as mentioned by you. Windows 8, 8.1 & 10 - are 64 Bit by default. Therefore some amount of incompatability is expected. There is no guarantee that they will work.

    Win 8.1 is a disaster of an OS and will be the worst to pair with a 11.6 inch laptop. Most often than not, laptops below 20,000 Rs will not come with licensed Win 8.1 - would mostly be available with Linux or DOS. Windows 10 is not great either, but definitely better than 8 / 8.1. 10 also has it's share of issues.

    Despite all this - to answer your query - we would recommend the Asus X200 series. These are 11.6 inch laptops, very sleek and lightweight. Sturdy too. They come in a variety of configurations - from Celeron Dual Core, Pentium Quad Core - even i3 processors. Most of them have 2 Gb RAM onboard and 320 Gb hard disk. It has all the other features you would expect - including HDMI port, card reader, USB 3.0 ports and has a great battery life.

    Feel free to ask if any other clarification needed.
