A piano is not a commodity or a necessity like a phone, computer, food, gas, vehicle, apartment or house. A piano purchase is using your discretionary income so you could make a choice to live without it. However, if you or someone in your family is anything like me (or my students) when it comes to listening to or playing music (incl piano, keyboard, guitar, etc) then it is something that is difficult to be without and I know many other people feel the same way. It's also one of the best things you or a family member can do for yourselves or your children no matter what age you are!
Take a look at the new Casio Privia PX850 and PX780 (above left pic) which I recommend in the lower price range that can be seen at the following links on my blog reviews:
