At only 11.7 pounds, the Yamaha PSR-260AD is easily portable. It operates with an included adapter.

The sound is much better than you would expect in a keyboard this price! 100 instrument sounds and some of them need just a little imagination to tie them to the real world instrument, but they are fun and the piano sounds really are quite good. The touch-sensitive feature works very well and is a real plus. I thought this instrument would come with a sustain peddle, but it does not; you can order one for another 20$. As a starter, before spending big money on a real piano for my daughter who is taking piano lessons, it is a great deal, and the whole family has had fun with it. Don't count on the included music or lessons to be of much use, though, they are too difficult for a beginner. Fortunately, Amazon has about a zillion beginner piano books, so maybe you would want to order one with the keyboard if you are just starting out.

This keyboard is a lot of fun. The sound quality is excellent--it sounds almost like a professional instrument, not the toy-like sound quality of other keyboards at this price. The 'Portable Grand' Piano sound is exceptionally good. It sounds even better plugged into an amp or when I use headphones.
With the Rhythms and sounds built in it's easy to make your own songs, or play existing songs and sound good.

Just a note after I received this keyboard from Amazon - despite what the Amazon page says, this keyboard does not have a built-in sequencer to record your own songs. For that you'll have to pay a bit extra and get the PSR280 61-Note keyboard.
Otherwise, the keyboards seems solid, the majority of the sounds are realistic and the speakers sound great.
