A bunch of people like older, rigid (no suspension parts) mtbs for commuting. A hardtail (mtb with only a suspension fork) with smooter tires works for some as well.

A mtb frame typically does weigh a bit more, but unless you plan on carrying the bike around a lot, the gearing compensates for that .

Not sure if there is a dealer close to you, but Raliegh is offering rebates on some of their models- which includes the Misceo and Cadent lines. Might see if the entry model of either line comes close to your budget with the discount.
