If you do not use the command line in a terminal - look at this no further. 

inxi (install if you choose) is a tool to output details about you computer into a very readable format.
Various linux forums encourage it's usage.  Some of them have extremely talented users of linux

The following post on another forum is an example of several persons utilizing inxi to present info about a regression in kernel 4.18 that bit several users in the butt. The problem was solved.  Regressions occur in testing, thankfully there are many fewer in testing than in sid - unstable.

Mark up as code in your posts via the # button. 

I am not encouraging anyone to leave sparky.  This is merely a useful tool I am happy I spent a little time learning. 
peace out.

inxi -f is helpful to see the "flags" your cpu has, whether it will work faster for virtualization,  etc.

inxi -h   is the help section and show huge number of ways to output your info. 

When you have to ask for help, using inxi is a way to say TIA - Thanks in Advance to the people who help.
