To get a little more information, open the Windows’ System Information application by hitting Windows+R and typing msinfo32 Image  System Information provides comprehensive information about your hardware resources, components (Sound device, Display -that’s how you can identify your Graphics Card-, Keyboard, etc.), and software environment (system drivers, environment variables, startup programs, etc.).

If you are a Mac user and looking for hardware and software information about your Mac, the Mac’s System Information utility is the way to go. You can open it by clicking the Apple menu , About this Mac, and then smashing the System Report… button.


If this is not enough, there are a few free utilities out there that can detect and display detailed information about your computer.

Information about your system in macOS and GNU/Linux

HardInfo is the most popular graphical system information and benchmark tool in GNU/Linux. Installation: sudo apt install hardinfo (Ubuntu, Debian); sudo pacman -S hardinfo (Arch).

  1. macOS: diskutil list lists all disks and their partitions. system_profiler reports on the hardware and software configuration of your macOS system. sw_vers prints your macOS operating system version information.
  2. GNU/Linux: The lshw is a nifty command-line tool to extract detailed information on the hardware configuration of your system (sudo apt-get install lshw). lsblk lists out all the storage blocks you have on your system, which includes hard drive partitions, flash drives, and optical drives. uname is a command-line utility that prints basic information about the operating system and system hardware: uname -a
