This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant.

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.
here are few cmd that might help
1. /sbin/lspci -> h/w info
2. lspci -> chipset and pci bus info
3. dmesg -> sys info
4. dmesg | tail -> search all devices attached to the sys.
5. /proc/cpuinfo -> cpu info
6. /etc/issue -> version info
7. lsmod -> kernel info
8. uname -r -> kernel info
