An easy way to to get to a line (whose number we know) faster is to combine some existing methods:

:123<CR>
or
123G
or
123gg

The solution is to map in normal mode the enter to G.

:nmap <CR> G

We can type the line number and then press Enter to get there.

Comments

Though

:123[Enter]

takes you to line 123 in the file,

123[Enter]

takes you 123 lines down from your present position.
