Description: information about hardware configuration
A small tool to provide detailed information on the hardware
configuration of the machine. It can report exact memory
configuration, firmware version, mainboard configuration, CPU version
and speed, cache configuration, bus speed, etc. on DMI-capable x86
systems, on some PowerPC machines (PowerMac G4 is known to work) and AMD64.
Information can be output in plain text, HTML or XML.
