Reading /proc/cpuinfo will give you the model and manufacturer. Don't 
know how to get the serial number. Was that not a controversial feature 
that was added by Intel and then removed because people complained?

Parsing the output of
hdparm -i /dev/hda
might get you something useful, if your hard drive is /dev/hda. You'd 
have to be root, though. And hdparm might not be installed. But I'm sure 
Google can point you at its source code.

/proc/meminfo should give you the size.

Don't know.

Looking forward to someone more knowledgable giving better info :)
