Things that are important:

1. Processor Make/Model
2. Clock speed
3. Cache size
4. Memory type
5. Memory quantity
5. OS Type
6. Version

1-3, 5-6 are easy to get programmatically. In linux 1-3 are
avaiable through /proc/cpuinfo, and 5-7 from various sources.

Windows provides this information as well, through the
sysinfo utility (whose name escapes me). It outputs a very
parsable text file.
