Default Looking for a new Notebook. 15", i5+, 128SSD+, matte display

I was looking for a new notebook on the net and I am really surprised I couldn't find something that is
15" matte screen
i5+
at least 128gb ssd
is not aesthetically ugly like those one made for gaming.

The Macbook Pro would fit in this category if it wasn't for its super-glossy display you can't stand more that 2 hours looking at
The Samsung's seem to have the SSD form 13 inches going down (who can explain that? :S)

Alternatives?

Check for the HP Elitebooks, though they are very expensive.

I like the HP Elitebooks, thanks!
Lenovo mounts SSDs that are no more that 24GB in capacity (16GB if you will exclude the heavy, ugly gaming series), so nothing to do with those one.

...I just checked the HP Elitebooks' price with 256GB SSD and they're at €1800 here in Italy :S
The equivalent macbook pro is €1800 with the student discount, and it's the retina.

Is there any other notebook that's worth looking into?
Otherwise, I think I'll wait till new notebooks come up or the anti-glare options on the MacBook Pros returns.
