I'm not 100% sure I know what you mean but I think this is what you want. Open up a terminal and give the command

Code:
cat /proc/cpuinfo
That will tell you all about your processor. You can also find out other things about your computer by using the 'cat' command on the various files in the /proc directory.

you can also do
Code:
uname -m
and on windoze, you can right-click "my computer" and go properties, and its down the bottom, or for more detailed info, go to the hardware browser.
