Good commuting road bike?

Hi all, I've been riding a cheap raleigh mtb to college for the past 5 months, and seeing as it's pretty knackered already i'm looking to buying a decent entry-level road bike. The journey is about 20-25 miles a day, and I'd like to take a new road bike for some weekend rides.

Basically, I've read on here that the Trek 1000 is generally considered to be a good beginners' road bike, but I haven't heard much about it from commuters. Any of you guys know if it's a good sturdy commuter bike?

Other options for about the same price are the Specialized Allez series and the Carrera Vanquish, but i have no idea if these are any good either
