Certainly!
The pre-installed terminal program inxi gives great information; for example, try inxi -Fzx for an overview that's suitable to post in the forum (no sensitive information) and will help people help you. For more options than you can shake a stick at, use man inxi.

If you like things more graphical, Hardinfo might be what you're looking for. It can be found in the Software Manager.

inxi is installed by default.

There's a mint command script ready to be run called upload-system-info and that runs an inxi command then further pipes it to the termbin paste site and opens it in your browser.

The upload-system-info inxi information part is: inxi -Fxxxrzc0
-that's (F)ull output, triple verbose(x), include (r)epos list, mask personal info(z), and strip color codes(c0).

You can learn how to use inxi by using command: inxi --help

check out inxi command alone, or add -S flag. there are many options.

There are other ways to get specific info, or something particular to an exact piece of hardware, but inxi is a good tool for general system specs.

And not to forget the system reports of LM 19.x in the menu, where you get the system informations similar to the inxi-outputs in the terminal.

inxi is the tool, especially if you need to post the output. Wished Windows had something like it back when I was using Windows. Not as good IMO, hardinfo is a tool with GUI output and looks a lot like Everest Windows utility. You can install hardinfo package from Package Manager or by running:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install hardinfo
and invoke hardinfo by running

Code: Select all

hardinfo

Also in a terminal:

Code: Select all

sudo lshw
will return loads of info.

You can also export to a nice looking html file by:
sudo lshw -html > hardware.html
This will add the document to your home directory named hardware.html
