    I see you're looking for "Home Style" keyboards.
    If you're into that, try YAMAHA's PSR 9000 or the new TYROS. Both are the best thing on its genre.

    For serious sequencing AND voice editing, there are lots of options as a Yamaha MOTIF, Korg TRITON, Korg KARMA, etc.

    sequencing

    it depends how serious you are. i used to use rolands and yamahas and swore by them. then i changed to a much more expensive keyboard. And id never turn back.. If you are going to spend little money expect little return, in satisfaction (i mean), but if you spend wisely and get something more top of the line, you may find it is your first and last really great keyboard you will ever buy. I have a korg Workstation, and korg tritons are great too.

    I'm not well versed on the different keyboards and inbuilt features.

    What do the Yamaha MOTIF, Korg TRITON, Korg KARMA, etc. (mentioned earlier) offer that makes them so great?.

    Do they offer all the features of sequencer software (like cakewalk etc), on the keyboard itself?.

    Depends what kind of music you want to do. I have a Yamaha QS300 and its so cool. It has XG and GM as well as loads of kick ass sounds and it loads midi files straight in. I got mine for £749 about two years ago so if you can get one second hand go for it. Its great for dance music

    I have to ask the same question as gandalf. Does any keyboard offer the functions that computer software like cakewalk and cubase do? Can you create a midifile note for note, or is it all patches?

    I use Roland XP-50 keyboard. It has internal sequencer for midi recording. It has a floppy drive for saving the midi. You can even save the midi in GM format. Hope this helps...

    You know Merlin... it occurs to me that maybe all these keyboard sequencer users have just never used a PC sequencer program before... or maybe never seen what one can do....

    Poor guys!!

    I was just talking to a keyboard player friend of mine a couple of weeks ago. He was telling me how much better the Yamaha PSR-1000 is over the Yamaha PSR-740. "Yeah, Yeah", he said, "The 740 can only load ONE Midi file at a time from floppy, but the 1000 can load ten and store them in memory", "Wow... ten files huh!", I replied, with a hint of sarcasm... whilst remembering that I've got about 8000 files on my PC and I have a databaseprogram which allows me to find and load any of them within a few seconds.
