Now you're talking!
Even with your minimal experience you were able to tell the difference between the various actions, and you knew which felt closer to an acoustic. At that point, it's a matter of taste, budget, and other features you're interested in. You should make a list of what you want. And not a list of features and specifications, but a description of what you want to do with the instrument. Then we can better help you find one with the specs and features you'll need.

i've been wondering for a while: why Yamaha never put GH3 action on its stage pianos? right now, only CLPs or CVPs own such action.
I can play repetitions on my P80 as fast as my fingers will go. Even on GH action, you can repeat notes without letting the key return fully. But I'm eager to try the GH3.
I agree, it's about time they offer a portable with GH3. You know what would be sweet, is if GH3 were a drop-in replacement for GHE. Still, I gotta find one to try out first to really determine if it's worth it.
