how to know hardware details of your system

Do you want to know the complete details of your Ubuntu/Debian flavor system details ?

We can generate it using lshw [el-es-ech-w] stands for Hardware Lister.

lshw (Hardware Lister) is 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 or EFI (IA-64) systems and on some PowerPC machines.

You can see the man page for lshw here[link].

To run this, you should have Linux 2.4.x or 2.6.x or higher kernel version.

How To generate system_details.html

At first you have to open Terminal from:

sudo lshw -html > system_details.html

You can create xml or we can get it in a GUI, for that you have to install the package.

sudo apt-get install lshw-gtk

sudo command is for getting superuser privileges. [wikipedia]
