tool for listing hardware information and decoding it into human readable form. This tool decodes the DMI information.
Show system serial number
sudo dmidecode -t system | grep Serial sudo dmidecode -s system-serial-number
Show memory info including max installable
sudo dmidecode -t memory
Show bios version
You may need to grep for a different string, but even then it doesn't always show the info because not all machines support this.
sudo dmidecode -t bios | grep -i revision
Shower power supply information
This doesn't always work. Some power supplies are not supported.
dmidecode -t 39

# -s without a keyword lists all keywords # -s with a keyword shows only the value of that keyword dmidecode -s |& grep '^ ' | while read -r X ; do echo $X: $(sudo dmidecode -s $X) ; done ;
