I think that only dmidecode will provide you this information. However regular users may not use this command.

Try "lshal | grep system\.hardware". The information is spread across several items.

lshw (Got to run as root) will give you a lot of information. It doesn't recognize if its a dell or whatever brand (since they only mount computer parts). It will however give you a lot of information like the MB vendor, firmware, CPU, socket, RAM vendor, and lots of nice information.
Not every distro come with lshw, but it's out there - somewhere :)

I want to Thank all of your for your quick reply :).

So here is my conclusion.

1) dmidecode command will give me system information with root user and not with non root user.
2) lshw is a third party utility which also gives the same information (only root user).
3)"lshal | grep system\.hardware" command didnt given me sufficient info.

With Regards,
Adastane.
