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!

Here's how I would approach it in a BAT file.

~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
  )
)
