Well....
Your budget is kinda tight..
You really need weighted 88 notes digital piano at least if you plan to learn piano. Weighted means the keyboard keys feel "heavy" when you press it(like real piano) ..in contrast to no resistant "regular" or synthesizer style keys. Try used digital pianos at local musical instrument stores or spend like 450 to get Casion PX100 digital piano. Two you mentioned are not suitable to learn piano playing. They are made for fun song playing only(auto rhythm back up playing).
