Are there any good tools for reporting on a computer’s specs?

I'm really looking for something that will display the highlights and hide the nitty-gritty details until I dig down. The highlights are the stuff that would be on the outside of the PC box. SIW is a bit more comprehensive than I would like.

So far System Spec is the best that I have found:

Any other suggestions?

If you don't need a gui, what about good old "systeminfo.exe"? its built into every version of windows. The top lines are the general stuff you want, and further down is service packs and updates installed, etc. It can export to CSV..

Or, for a more traditional GUI, that is also in every version of windows, there is MSInfo32.exe.

Not very user friendly, though – Sathya Dec 6 '10 at 17:29

It's probably more verbose than you want, but I use the free Belarc Advisor.
