Ubuntu: About UBUNTU Operating System details in Dell 15 3521 Laptop


I have purchased new Dell 15 3521 Pentium Dual Core 3rd Generation Laptop having Operating system UBUNTU. I am unable to see information about system properties like Installed memory(RAM), Processor etc. Kindly help

Not able to view WebCam & has 1.0MP, is there any software needs to install/download or can view directly.

What is the latest UBUNTU Operating system available now.

Please give answer.

Thank you, Srinath


Install Sysinfo from the Ubuntu Software Center. Sysinfo is a graphical tool that is able to display some hardware and software information about the computer it is run on.

It is able to recognize information about:

  • System (Linux distribution release, versions of GNOME, kernel, gcc and Xorg and hostname)
  • CPU (vendor identification, model name, frequency, level2 cache, bogomips, model numbers and flags)
  • Memory (total system RAM, free memory, swap space total and free, cached, active, inactive memory)
  • Storage (IDE interface, all IDE devices, SCSI devices)
  • Hardware (motherboard, graphic card, sound card, network devices)
  • NVIDIA graphic card: only with NVIDIA display driver installed

Have you tried SystemMonitor? As far i know it comes installed by default but if it's not installed try:

1- Open your terminal (ctrl+alt+t);

2- type: sudo apt-get install gnome-system-monitor;

3- type your password;



There is a detailed article on the subject at this link. http://www.linuxandlife.com/2011/11/how-to-check-hardware-specification-in.html .

However you can use this command at the terminal

sudo lshw -short
