Following up on this; 1 year later, what keyboard did you end up with?
Do the same recommendations still apply?

Looking at this one: http://www.m-audio.com/products/en_us/ProKeys88.html

It seems nice. All I'm after is an arguably 'simple', portable, piano
that I can use to play piano music. Not overly obsessed with general
music-writing (synth?) but I'd be happy if it was available in the <
1k (AUD) range.
