g'day everyone my name is keith, i have been playing uke for bout 2 months now,I also play banjo for abouts 5 months too, bought my first one cost me $30 it was shit but it was good to learn on, im now looking to upgrade to something a bit better and looking at spending about $200, i have a few links of some i like (these are on australian ebay) i was wondering if use can tell me though, whats the the difference between a soprano(which i have now), a concert and a tenor ukulele, i know the soprano is smaller thats all, also if i did get a tenor, or concert will all the cord placements on the fret board be different??? heres the ones im looking at let me know, im going for a ride on my kangaroo now out to the bog:D cheers

This video should answer a lot of your questions.

also if i did get a tenor, or concert will all the cord placements on the fret board be different???

No, you can tune all the sizes the same way.

In that case...why don't you spoil yourself with a nicer uke? Those Kalas are nice, but hey, you deserve it, haha!

Any help you need, just contact me, I run a music store in Cairns and we specialise in ukes. Sold quite a few over that way too.
