How to display Product name and Vendor name in Linux

This post will help you to find out the

  • Product Name
  • System Vendor Name 
This will help you to find the suitable device drivers if any.

The following is the command to find the System Vendor (in my case it is Hewlett Packard)
prompt $] cat /sys/class/dmi/id/sys_vendor

Here is the command to find the product name

prompt $] cat /sys/class/dmi/id/product_name


Printing the System Vendor and Product Name
cat is the command to concatenate the files and print it to the standard output
