Arcade and core are practically the same, as are pro and premium.
The easiest way to tell is that the core or arcade has a white plastic disc tray front. And the premium has a chrome effect shiny silver one.
But it's almost impossible to tell whether it's a refurb. Xbox warranty covers them for 3 years against red ring without question. The date of manufacture will be on the back.

There's really no way to tell, just hopefully it doesn't get the RRoD.

Well, the Premium has a chrome-effect CD Drive.

Yea. I'm sure you could either call them or go to the website and check warranty. The warranty info should include what model you have and previous work done to the system.

You bought an refurbished system? From who? and do you have warranty with it?
I stopped buying refurbished/used systems ever since they broke down withing a couple to a few months. The only way I would get an refurbished again would be if I am saving a lot of money.
