Knowing very little about pianos myself, what should I be looking for in purchasing a digital piano? At the moment she is very much a beginner, but I wouldn't want to purchase something that will limit her too soon.
Some specific questions:
How important is the number of keys?
What should I look for in the keys to get a good real piano feel?
What else should I look out for? Is there any reason to strongly oppose a digital piano?
If you want a real piano, then it might be prudent to rent one first - a lot of shops will rent them to you and knock off what you've already paid from the price should you decide to buy. You can get free pianos on Freecycle, but do take and experienced player or - preferably - a tuner with you to give it the once over. There are bargains out there!
