Came with 4gb of memory instead of 2. And upgradeable to Yosemite for free with Apple ID

This was to be a X-mas present for my wife. When I opened the boxed and saw this nasty looking beat up laptop, I could not in any way give this to my wife for X-mas. It looked so used that it appeared like it just came out of someones closet and was...

Refurbished, used or recycled?
