I have a T43 IBM Thinkpad and I wanted to sell it, and I wanted to know if there's sometype of software I can run that will list all the hardware/software that my laptop has presently, so that I can post it and sell it online.

Personally, due to privacy and giving out information you don't want to give out, I would suggest you post the specsfrom IBM's website such as:  http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-58317.html
Then manually add software you are going to sell with it, don't forget it is not work mentioning Adobe Acrobat Reader, iTunes, etc, since these are free anyway!!

Please download "Speccy" from http://www.piriform.com/speccy/download 

Run the program then go to 'File->Save as Text File'
Open the Text file with word editor of choice.
Delete Operating System Serial
Delete all of Network information

Other than that there is no personal information that is loaded into Speccy

Depending on your Operatins System, if you have Windows, you can use the System Information utility. This will show hardware resources, like, RAM, Hard Disk, processor, etc... It can be found under Start - Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Information.

Hope this helps.

Speccy is a great tool

http://www.piriform.com/speccy

also, try SIW, it's a very thorough scanning tool and will list all sorts of things in your computer, including saved passwords and personal information, so you know what can still be accessed and what needs to be removed prior to selling.

You can also bring up the info via the Lenovo website:
First go here:
http://www.lenovo.com/services_warranty/us/en/

Then under the Warranty Information leftside menu option choose:
Warranty Lookup to get this page:
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=LOOK-WARNTY

From the laptop you're talking about, you can click Auto-detect warranty button, or just type in the type and serial number. For example, we have an older T43 here at work that has these numbers for the type: 2668, then enter the L3-xxxxx serial number.

When you get to the Warranty Status page, there's a link called, "View parts lookup results for this system"

On the T43 I looked up, this info displayed:
