If you don't hear back from someone in your area for what is available, your budget should be OK to get a laptop with an 1050 video card, or possibly the MX150 video card. Issue is that in your area computer prices are quite a bit higher than in the US, as well as models differ from area to area, so it's tough to point to a single system. Any of the major brands are OK though, ASUS, Lenovo, Dell, MSI.
