i want to buy a xbox this christmas but which one?

Hi,

I want to buy my partner a xbox console for xmas but which one?

My partner is not an avid gamer but likes a play after work and quiet weekends, he has already told me he wants an xbox for christmas, and he seems interested in this online gaming (do you have to know people or can you just play against anyone, people you dont know) , but he is not interested in downloading movies, music or networking ETC (we have other media for this)

We actually had an elite about 2 years ago which he bought on impulse and we didnt have any idea what you could do with it, he just bought games from the shops and then played them, then it got the ring of deaf about a year later, this put us off buying another, but now he is saying he misses his xbox as he thinks the games are better than his ps3

Any advice would be great
