cat /proc/cpuinfo | less

cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep model

Is a bit better :)

Jessica, there is a package in synaptic called lshw-gtk

it can be installed either via synaptic or cli as follows

sudo apt-get install lshw-gtk

then you open/execute it with

gksu lshw-gtk

or create a launcher on your desktop with the same command entered.

to find your graphics card in a terminal enter:

   lspci | grep -i vga

Good luck,
George
