    -Laptop would need to have text-to-speech available in the simplest, least-step manner possible for all photocopies of articles, school books, etc.
    -Would need to be able to download foreign digital books (PDF), be able to write in them (on the workbook/exercise sections), be able to highlighted texts, EASILY put highlighted texts into a "recapped" format and read them back in English or Italian (student lives and studies in Italy so has school books in both languages).
    -Need to be able to create "notebooks" for notetaking in class, not only typed notes but also handwritten (geometry, physics formulas, etc.)
    -Would be great if he could record classes
    -Be able to dictate and have dictations turned into written texts (voice recognition)

    That's a great suggestion. Any Mac laptop will work for those purposes I think. This seems more of a software question than the hardware of the laptop itself. Hopefully an Apple Store would be able to help you get the right software for those needs.
