  Hard drives are a bit tricky, because the system treats device-mapper
devices and physical devices similarly in many contexts.  I'd suggest
scanning /proc/partitions for the devices that look like /dev/sd<x>
(with no numerical suffix) or /dev/hd<x>, where x is a letter.

  For memory chips, you can do "dmidecode" and count up the 
populated "type 17" entries, but beware, I believe it will
also report un-populated DIMM slots.

  As for a desktop GUI tool, I have no idea.  Probably there
is, but that's not really my world.
