Question MTR vs DAW

Hi, first post from a lurker.

I'm trying to decide if I need a computer and new audio interface. I recently bought a Tascam 2488mkII hard disc recorder figuring I would keep things simple.

Since then, I bought a Motif XS6 keyboard that came with Cubase 4AI, and I have a Delta 1010 audio interface which I've never really used, and my computer is >5 years old. I never had the time to spend to learn how to set it up with my Mackie 1202VLZ.

The connectivity of the Motif intrigues me and not using the Delta 1010 seems silly, but would it be better to ditch that and go with a Yamaha N8 and new computer (can get decent bundle for <$2k)? If so, would there be any reason to keep the Tascam?

I am a home hobbyist, and have guitars in addition to the keyboard.

Any suggestions other than telling me to go to a gear-aholics anonymous meeting? Thanks, Jim.
