I live in a rather poor country where electronics costs a lot. (new Roland RP401 = 1200$ and more).

I have found a Yamaha Clavinova CLP-230 in mint condition for 740$, incl. transport.

However,I have been also told by my friend that digital pianos lose value like PCs and what has been a 1500$ piano for 2008 isn't really worth even 740$ today. He suggested I shouldn't buy the CLP-230 and go for something for 800$ but new, since it's like buying Pentium 1 when Pentium 3 was available: who cares that the Pentium 1 was more expensive 5 years ago that pentium 3 was at the moment of release?

Can you post your opinions on the matter?
