I'd like to display system data in my "About" form in an Access application.  The data I am looking to show includes:

Computer system data (processor, RAM, Harddrive Size / remaining space, location of application).

Does anyone have experience doing this?

Many thanks in advance.

This article dates back to 2007.  Where do I find the values for the newer processors (e.g. I5, I7, AMD8, etc.)
