comment When tuning a guitar, why is it only in tune for a moment?
@Matt: try gently resting a finger of your left hand at the half-way fret and releasing as the string is plucked. This mutes some harmonics and can give a tone that is easier to tune.

comment MIDI-Keyboards with integrated audio?
From what I recall, the special drivers were for low-latency. In situations where latency was not an issue, you can use standard USB-MIDI drivers.

comment MIDI-Keyboards with integrated audio?
@flopr: The Sono 61 and 88 actually have built in 128 General MIDI range of instruments plus 46 drum sounds. The 5 or 10 high quality instruments have dedicated buttons but you can access the others. The Sonos incorporate MIDI-keyboard, sound synthesis and a basic audio mixer (e.g. for guitar and mic). You only need external monitors. As in CLs answer, stage-piano is a useful term for this class of devices.

You may find it worthwhile reading a brief introduction to MIDI

comment How can I make my keyboard sound like a Hammond organ?
Stand-alone MIDI sound modules are good in that they don't have the latency problems you so often get with PC USB based solutions. However PC-based Virtual instruments have the virtue of cheapness (assuming you already have the laptop)

comment What should I look for in speakers for an electronic keyboard
Another option to look for are a pair of small "studio monitors". These are powered loudspeakers with a built-in amplifier intended for listening at close distances. They are suitable for use at home.
