Ubuntu Find Motherboard Model

If you need to find the motherboard model of your system from the terminal or command line and you do not want to take off the case, there is a program that comes with Ubuntu by default that can do this: dmidecode

If you do not have it, you can install it with this command in most Debian based distributions (Lubuntu, Debian, Mint):

sudo apt-get install dmidecode

To find out your motherboard model, run this command:

sudo dmidecode -s baseboard-product-name

To find more details about your motherboard, run this command:

sudo dmidecode -t baseboard

To find details about all the hardware on your system, run this command:

sudo dmidecode
