Ihave the ipod touch....got one LOVE It!!! Its got wifi, no camera, lots of cool apps. including plenty of games to chose from. I got the larger memory because I have tons of music. You can download songs directly to the touch using itunes and wifi. You don't have to have a docking station to charge it, you buy a wall charger that the computer cord it comes with plugs into. If he doesn't have his own laptop, that's the best way to charge it otherwise it will download what ever is on the community computer's itunes onto his ipod.
If you do get a touch for him....get a cover that will protect the back from scratches AND get the packet of screen protectors that allow you to still use the touch screen but keep it from scratching. Apple has good deals on refurbished ones on their website that have the full warranty.
