Welcome to CS.
Honestly, when you stipulate a budget, it is very difficult then to dictate the features you expect to get for the money. You will get what you get, within the available price.
Also, does your budget include the grinder, or just the machine?
If its just the machine, suggest first up our BFC Diadema Junior "PUL" model, of which I have a small number left at end of fin year stock take sale price. Its just outside your stated budget but some things are worth striving for.
Its a 1.3 litre semi commercial heat exchanger (HX) machine (with E61 grouphead).
Solid, heavy (around 22kg dry from memory). Corrosion proofed anodised steel chassis, all stainless steel body & drip tray. 2 x commercial group handles.
Ahh yeah....the best drip tray in its class as far as I am concerned, and an excellent semi commercial espresso machine.
See if I can dig up a photo and come back (and of course the tamper and stand in the photo are at extra cost...they're just props for the photo).
Its available though myself and selected agents.
And as per your second choice (manual machine), I also have a PV Lusso in stock. A great little machine.
Hope that helps.
