Check RAM/Speed in bash?

Using bash, how do I check the CPU's RAM, processor speed, and total disc capacity? I think top displays the RAM right?
Mem: 125784k total
So it's 128mb RAM?

Memory; free -m
CPU info: cat /proc/cpuinfo
Drive capacity: fdisk -l
(that is the lowercase letter 'L' not the number [1] one)

See the 'man free' and 'man fdisk' without the single quotemarks for the details and other options.

Yes, that should be the amount of system memory available from the output of the 'top' command.
