    Your budget is a little limited. Fortunately, outside of battery life, your requirements are modest and most 13-14" notebooks will meet them.

    I'd start with a business model like the Dell Latitude 14 5000 series, which is strong and can withstand travel better than most consumer notebooks. The HP ProBook 600 line is another, though probably more expensive.
