With that budget in the Philippines, it might as well be second-handm but buyer beware, or a brand new core-i3, but depends on your work, you might need more cores.

But here are some recommendations that can be found in the PH:
-Acer Swift X
-Acer Aspire Models
-MSI Prestige or Modern
-Dell Inspirons within your budget
