Tried to search but can't find anything. Is there an unix equivalent to right clicking / properties on My Computer to see things like memory, cpu speed etc ?
You could try http://ezix.org/project/wiki/HardwareLiSter
dmidecode should work on most *nix systems, although it takes some translating. There's also
biosdecode in the same package.
The following link has one code which get all the info for a server/system, but it works with RHEL/Fedora/Suse/Ubuntu. I havn't used it on any of the unix boxes so please try it out and let us know. Also what its output looks like on your system.
