Default Present for BF

I would like to purchase a digital camera for my boyfriend for Christmas and am a bit confused! I want to spend $250-$400 and want the best deal in this price range. He is a novice so I don't need it too fancy but just very nice where he will go WOW! I thought about the Olympus 550 but do I need 3 mp or would another model with 2 work. Please help!

Also, he has a laptop so he would need to download to it.

Thank you so much!!

I would say that an Olympus 550 would be a nice present. The minimum camera I would recommend is a 2mp, 3x optical zoom. Nikon, Canon, Minolta, Kodak, Fuji or my favorite Olympus would be a good brand. The Olympus C4000 is a 4mp, 3x optical zoom that can be purchased for less than $400 over the web. Check www.dealtime.com for prices and vendor ratings.
