I want to try and learn to play the piano... and I want to get a decent keyboard. Anyone have a good suggestion? Price range... I'd like to keep it under/around $400. I'm sure that'll limit me to just beginner stuff, but that's probably all I need since I'm just learning.

I'd still like it to be a decent one, though... maybe MIDI capable so I could do extra shit with a computer...

Any suggestions on brands or models?

I used to have a nice Yamaha keyboear, and I know I paid under $400 for it.
Just take a trip to your local Guitar Center or Sam Ash.

Casio or Yamaha consumer keyboards are fine. If you want built-in accompaniments and many instrument voices to play with, go with one of those.

If you want a more "digital piano" kind of thing rather than "keyboard," then you could try this:

This can connect to PC or Mac via USB, but it requires external speakers.

Either way, your local music store (Guitar Center, any piano store, etc.) should be able to help you.

I was looking at some used Korgs and Rolands on ebay. Not sure which models are good though.
