I'm needing some sort of script that I can run against 3 models of computers, and say "if wmic csproduct get name = 755 optiplex, run this......., and this. If wmic csproduct name = optiplex 620 run this, and this.
Basically just having to update bios and its settings, plug some power management settings on the NIC. I'm not the greatest scripter, but know what I'm needing. Any help is appreciated!

Let me know if I am wrong, but I think you are trying to get the computer model. If this is the case this is a vb script that does that.

You will then need to adapt your if statments to match the correct names provided by the computer manufacturer
strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

Set colSettings = objWMIService.ExecQuery ("Select * from Win32_ComputerSystem")
For Each objComputer in colSettings 
    Wscript.Echo  objComputer.Model
Next

Here's how I would approach it in a BAT file.  It uses WMIC to get the product name, and then based on that value can perform any needed logic.

~bp
@echo off
for /F "skip=2 tokens=2 delims=," %%A in ('wmic csproduct get name^,version /format:csv') do (
  if /I "%%A" EQU "755 optiplex" (
    REM insert processing needed here
    exit /b
  )
  if /I "%%A" EQU "optiplex 620" (
    REM insert processing needed here
    exit /b
  )
)
