I want to export the complete hardware configuration of a vm to the console via PowerCLI. Get-VM seems to only have limited information based on a Get-VM xxx | Get-Member check. In vCenter, if you right click on a vm and select "Edit Settings" you get a GUI based breakdown of the entire virtual hardware config of the VM. I want to output that exact information to the console.

I know Get-View will let me access the plethora of API's which contain this information, however, at that point I am just writing my own cmdlet from scratch which is a ton of work.
