I just bought a new MP7 from MF. I agree that you need a savings account for maintenance. If you do it over the life of several instruments you will come out very much ahead. Also Always buy a good case. That will prevent most damage. Even a good

Having used a couple, I would also recommend the AirTurn. It can still be frustrating in some ways... I hate the way they've overloaded functions onto a single button and single LED... however the pedals work quite well. For my use, the only tablet

There is an issue with the Rococo Variations, too, since they were cut and rearranged by a famous cellist.

A free piano is never free. 99% need major repair. I recommend having the piano inspected before you take possession. It's worth the money for an inspection.

Alexander Borro is correct....if you are going to play through computer speakers, you need some that are capable of handling a solid signal and things like bass. The Electric Pianos on the MP7 are rich and have a strong bass end, and low end quality

I would guess $5,000-10,000 to do it correctly. If it is a Baldwin, it might be worth it. If it is another make manufactured by Baldwin, definitely not.
