As the expert pilson66 already mentioned, dmidecode is a very strong utility, but it dumps too much information.  If you want to see on type of information at a time you can do the following.

Here is your chart

Keyword     Types
       ------------------------------
       bios        0, 13
       system      1, 12, 15, 23, 32
       baseboard   2, 10, 41
       chassis     3
       processor   4
       memory      5, 6, 16, 17
       cache       7
       connector   8
       slot        9

So if you need BIOS, you can say
dmidecode --type bios

Open in new window


Or you can also say.
dmidecode --type 0,13

Open in new window


Downside, some times it does not recognize --type so then you will have to use grep.

If you want bios information you can use
biosdecode
