Dear Experts,

I am using Fedora core (6 servers ranging from version 4-9).

How would I be able to (using the command-line) pull out the system's information?

I need to know which server has the best hardware, so I can throw out the old ones.

    there is the lshw command. I know it is out there for Debian and RedHat distros (Ubuntu and Fedora). works great especially when you pipe it into a text file.
    If not already installed you can do one of these two depending on distro:
    Debian / Ubuntu: apt-get install lshw or
    RedHat / Fedora: yum install lshw
