Looking for advice on a 13.3" lappy

My daughter had her computers stolen, both the 9" netbook and the old faithful 16" Toshiba A105.
I figure that these days the best thing to replace both with is a 13.3" with an i5-2410M.
She needs a DVD drive but nothing any more special.
I need to keep the price under $800.
Lots of options
Lenovo IdeaPad Z370
HP ProBook 6360b
Toshiba Portege R835
Toshiba Satellite L730
Samsung Q330

What has your recent experience been?
Have I missed a winner?
Help me. Thanks Ed

    Lenovo/IBMs continue to be built like tanks. They're not pretty, but they're fantastically reliable.

    One thing that I am curious about is the Portege. This is one on Newegg and is lower priced than any on Toshiba's site. These are built with magnesium frames and are supposed to be very durable.
    It is also the lightest by a fair margin.
    Any one have one?
