2010 MacBook Pro - Good enough for Yosemite ?

So I'm going to be taking my dad's 2010 MacBook Pro off his hands. It has a Core 2 Duo, 4GB and 500GB HDD. With an upgrade to an SSD and possible RAM upgrade, do you think it will run Yosemite with acceptable performance ?

I won't be using it for particularly taxing tasks, just some Microsoft Office, Youtube, Web Browsing, Netflix etc.

I'm hoping it will work properly, because the new features such as the ones in Continuity are awesome and I'd love to be able to take advantage of them, especially considering I use an iPhone and iPad.
