I own an RX100 and love it. However, if recommending a camera to someone with no experience, I'd suggest a Panasonic LX5, Canon s95 or an Olympus XZ-1. Great prices for those camera right now and enough manual control for a new photographer to experiment and grow as a photographer. I've owned the XZ-1 and s95.....great cameras. Would maybe pick either the LX5 or XZ-1 because of their great , bright lenses and go with the s95 if you need pocketability. No need to buy the RX100....buy it next year at a discount(with the release of the RX200) if you feel you need it.

JMHO,

Richard
