First of all, internet connection. Yes, he should be able to connect both devices wireless through wifi (it's pretty much a standard these days). Secondly, using either device as a "computer". It sorta depends on what your definition of "computing" is. You can use your ps3 and some models of blu-ray/dvd players as devices to search for stuff (like say google or youtube). However, they are extremely limited in what they can do and not to mention, their speeds are typically far less than of a standard computer, of any type. In short, you really cheat yourself out of a true computing experience by going that route. If you want to use your television as a computer, I highly recommend getting a computer hooked up to it. If you have a modern tv (i.e. a flatscreen or even most dlp's), you can just get any computer and hookup the dvi or rgb cable directly to it. If it's an older model you'll need a converter box that will turn your computers monitor output into a tv friendly signal (roughly about $30-$40). You will most likely need wifi capable computer. If your computer isn't wifi, you can easily convert any computer into a wireless one by using a usb connectable wifi antenna (it'll cost you about $20 bucks at Fry's electronics or newegg online). Top it off by adding a wireless keyboard and mouse and VOILA! You're done.
