I received a PA700 vs PA1000 comparison sheet from Korg USA. I am copying and pasting the exact wording below. If It doesn't have the semi weighted keys than they've made a typo, but I don't think so. I will know soon enough. I should receive my 1000 hopefully by the end of Sept or beginning of October
