You can type Details in Gnome's search field. It shows you some basic information.

If you need more, you can use terminal commands like

  • lscpufor information about your CPU (see also lscpu --help),
  • lspci for information about your PCI bus connected devices (e.g. lspci | grep WiFi and lspci | grep VGA)
  • lsusb for information about your USB devices,

There is also a program called Hardware Lister. Since it's not installed by default, you first have to run sudo dnf install lshw (it's part of official Fedora software repository). If you then run lshw (or better sudo lshw) you will get bombed with information about your hardware. You can generate an easily readable html file by executing sudo lshw -html > my_hardware.html.

EDIT: Aparently, there is a graphical interface for lshw. To install that, simply type sudo dnf install lshw-gui in your terminal. (If the program doesn't start by clicking on the icon, run sudo lshw-gui from a terminal in order run it with root user permissions.)

Thanx, BTW lshw-gui only gives me information about boot and what brind and model is my laptop while lshw gives me everything

@RealPlayerCraft: This seems to be some kind of a bug. I first had the same problem (of very little information on the gui), then pressed "refresh" a few times (while Mainboard was marked) and suddenly all information (equal to lshw) showed up. lshw-gui is really just a gui-frontend for lshw (which we dont need since he have lshw).
