If you want to do it in a batch file or from a command window, use
net config server /srvcomment:"Your Description"
(48 characters maximum)

In the GUI, right-click "My Computer", choose "Manage" (*not* "Properties"). In the management window, right-click "Computer Management (local)", choose "Properties". The next window coming up look similar to the "My Computer" properties, but has only three tabs; go to "Network Identification", and you'll find a field to enter the machine's description.

Or, if you have a domain, you can enter the description using the "ADUC" console.
