Hi Brandt and all,

Build and install lshw.

as root:
slapt-src -i lshw

Then run lshw as root.
It has a man page

The output is verbose, but you can store it or pipe it to a pager like w3m, like:
lshw -numeric|w3m

Here is the top of the output of: "LANG=C lshw -numeric" here:
    description: Notebook
    product: 4284CY1
    vendor: LENOVO
    version: ThinkPad W520
    serial: R9M158P
    width: 64 bits
    capabilities: smbios-2.6 dmi-2.6 smp vsyscall32
    configuration: administrator_password=disabled chassis=notebook
family=ThinkPad W520 power-on_password=disabled
