'cat /proc/cpuinfo'

This will give you processor speed and other CPU-related stuff.

'top'

This will give you info about memory and cpu use of running programs. press 'q' to quit top.

Hope this helps.

Thank you all.

While waiting for answer I found the dmidecode command.
It lists out info about both bios and hardware.
