Firstly, welcome to Sengo :)

Secondly, how old is your son, and is he good with computers? If he's quite young or not very computer literate, then i'd reccomend buying him a new UK 2.0 PSP and a 1gb stick (although 2gbs are as cheap as £75 on ebay now).

1.5 PSP's have a few advantages/disadvantages;

+ Can run games made by random people on the internet, can run copied (pirated) games, can run emulators (old computer systems like SNES, Megadrive, Gameboy etc)

- Kinda confusing, theres always the possibility of destroying the PSP, newer games require 2.0 firmware

Welcome and pretty much as Bootaay said, it depends on what you want the psp to do really...
