i have toyed on a yamaha dx100 and basically i am yet to find anything that has 'solid bass' as nice as on that.
Is this a very restrictive keyboard or can anyone point me in the direction of a smilar one.
need that solid bass tho..

There's little point in buying a DX100 these days, there are software versions that are better. Native Instruments do one. The DX100 was a digital synth, and computing standards are obviously much improved nowadays. Also, for a beginner, FM programming is a bit much. You'd be far better to go for an analogue or modern VA synth.
I'd recommend the Korg MS2000. It's of limited polyphony, but that's balanced out by it's sounding superb. I think Dennis Ferrer was singing it's praises as a bass synth somewhere in here. It's also a great introductory synth, all the parameters are controlled by knobs. You get a feel for programming very quickly. The keyboard version feels somewhat less than sturdy, so I went for a rack version myself.

Novation KS4 is a good one... depending on how techy you're wanting your sounds.
