Type sudo lshw to your favourite terminal for comprehensive list of your hardware, including info about your RAM.

Thanks Riku Eskelinen, that solved my question.

lshw mis-reports my memory as 'size: 5GiB' when there's only 4Gb (2x2Gb). Are there any other sources of info, ideally I'm looking for something like this (extract from my sysinfo script):

Hardware:
    Machine Type: VGN-FZ21S Sony Corporation
    CPU: 2 x Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T7500 @ 2.20GHz
    Memory: 2 x 2gb PC2-5300 (667Mhz), timing: 5-5-5-15
    Storage:
                      Direct-Access ATA OCZ APEX_SSD
                      CD-ROM MATSHITA BD-CMB UJ-120

I can derive all apart from the Memory line.

ignore last post, mis-parsed output from lshw, no issues in Ubuntu v9.04 [jaunty].
