Hi everyone!

I have a list of PC hostnames on a spreadsheet which users are logged into daily. I have no other information as to the model of the PCs etc.
Is there a way from the command line/PowerShell or a tool I could use to determine this information without having to interrupt and without user knowing?

The main goal is to find out the Serial number of each PC, bonus would be  knowing which OS etc running etc.

Hope that makes sense!

Many Thanks :)
