What computer should I buy?

I'm going on exchange to an abroad university in September and I'm quite unsure what notebook I should buy. My budget is 600 euros, I could get to 700 but I'd rather not to.
There are way too many models around and I can't get my head around what's the best quality/cost ratio.  :upset: 
I'm also unsure whether I should wait for Broadwell.....I heard it's supposed to come out on September, but I don't know if I would make it in time and be able to buy it before I leave for the exchange.

Anyway, does anyone know of a notebook with these features in that price range?  :geek: 
Intel core i5 - fourth generation

1gb graphics (I'd rather not have intel integrated graphics, but I can manage)
1900x1200 screen resolution (or at least higher than 1366x768)

The most important aspect - Very good battery life (about 8 hours is what I'm looking for)

I'm also concerned about durability, since I don't have much money and I can't change my notebook too often (I've had this one for 5 years

Thank you in advance  :D
