How to know if Playbook was used before I bought it???

Hello playbook community, I bought a Playbook thru amazon, the description said that the playbook was new, but when the it arrived I noticed that the factory seals were broken, so my question is, how do I know if my playbook was used before, the seller might say they opened to verify everything was ok, but you know, I'd like to know if it was used or not.

It should look totally pristine, no finger marks, well packaged in uncreased cellophane, charger cable nicely tied up in twist ties in sealed bag, etc. Very difficult to fake that.  No way of testing if it was ever online that I know of, but it should ask you to set it up from scratch when you turn it on.  If it boots up into a working desktop it's been set up by someone ese and would need security wiping for your BB ID.
