Since its debut in 2005, several different versions of the Xbox 360 gaming console have become available, some with slightly different hardware features (most notably the hard drive). The first hard drive size available was 20 GB, followed by 60 GB, 120 GB and finally the 250 GB model. If you are unsure of which hard drive size your Xbox 360 has, you can find out in the Memory section of the Xbox 360 Settings menu. Turn on your Xbox 360 console and a controller. Choose the "Memory" sub-menu, select your hard drive and press the "Y" button on your controller to display the size of your Xbox 360 hard drive.

Offline Hard-Drive Size check
I was hoping that there was a way to confirm the hard-drive size of an original Xbox One console, because we're a secondhand dealer and don't buy in the consoles with all of their original boxes, so I can't confirm whether they are without kinect or not. I was hoping that there's a method to check it either by opening the console itself or doing an online serial number check like the Xbox 360. I'd prefer any other method rather than plugging in the console, performing the ~4GB update, creating a Microsoft account, signing in, check the hard-drive, and then do a factory reset.
