Howdy, looks like the maximum amount of RAM your friend can put into that machine is 6gb. Will definitely want about 4gb to get this machine up to scratch especially if they are going to be installing Mavericks on it. Tell him to head to crucial.com to do a system scan, it will then provide information on just how much RAM and also compatible RAM that can be installed.
Also for HDD maintenance, get them to boot into the original installer disk, or if they bought an upgrade disk then boot into that (hold down 'c' whilst starting machine and the disk is inserted), then quit the installer and start up disk management from it, from there a HDD repair and permissions repair can be done.

Hope this helps
