Do they make a 1-octave portable keyboard? Because I know what I'm asking for for my birthday if they do!
It's called investing in a harmonica. 'Tis what I did. 8)

Anyways, as for my 2 cents, if you're interested in actually doing more than just plunking out melodies, then weighted keys is non-negotiable. Honestly, just go try some out. Ask for one but request that you be active in the actual shopping. Different instruments suit different people. One of my pet peeves is when I have an instrument literally given to me as a surprise. Don't get me wrong, I am very much grateful and happy, but a person's instrument is an extension of themselves so you have to make sure that it's right for you. Music stores allow demo-ing on their instruments for this very reason.

I bought a Yamaha YPG 535 which is pretty good, but doesn't have the weighted keys. It comes with the stand, music holder, and pedal. It has all 88 keys, hundreds of sounds etc. It works pretty well for my purposes and I spent $500 on it at Guitar Center

$500 for that? Damn. I got my Yamaha P35 for less than $450. It has less bells and whistles, but it's a better keyboard in terms of its mechanics.
