You can get most hardware information using softwares, one of them is lshw. To use it, enter this in a Terminal window:
- Code: Select all
sudo lshw > ~/hardware.txt
And you will get an abundance of hardware information in a file named hardware.txt in your home directory. If you prefer a GUI utility, you may want to install hardinfo through Synaptic.
Softwares, however, can not get the type of RAM you have along with its manufacturer string, information about the power supply unit, and a few other limitations. To obtain such type of informations not accessible through softwares, you may either open up your computer case and have a close look inside or refer to the users manual that comes with your computer.
