you can also use cat /proc e.g
/proc/cpuinfo to see the processor info of your system
/proc/meminfo for RAM info
/proc/partitions for hard disk info

If you want to show the specs in a GUI like in windows, install lshw-gui:

su -
yum install lshw-gui
Then you may run it from the console or menu.

Alternatively, there is "hwbrowser"
