On teaching myself accordion, and differences between chromatic/diatonic.?

I'm planning on teaching myself the accordion, and this was the cheapest I could find. I have read before that the button accordion is easier to figure out, but I'd like to know what you guys think.

This is the accordion:

(Also, is it diatonic or chromatic? I tried researching it, but I couldn't find much about it. I think it's a Chinese make.)

I'd very much appreciate an accordionist's insight!
What I really need to know is if it's either chromatic or diatonic, really. Also, is it possible to play keyboard accordion songs *on* a button accordion? I was looking forward to playing some "Particle Man" and "La Valse d'Amelie". :P

Its chinese made - fairly low quality but for a couple hundred bucks it should last until your ready for a good one. The Diatonic button box is fairly intuitive to learn but somewhat limited as to the kind of music and key that you can play in. I suggest you go to Yahoo Groups at and search for "accordion" and then join one of the groups like buttonbox or one of the other groups and read the message archives and ask questions there. You might also ask it there is a local accordion club in your area. This would be of great help to you if there is as you might find other beginners or a local teacher.
