$ sudo apt install hardinfo
It can started as
hardinfo from the shell or as System Profiler and Benchmark in the Ubuntu Launcher.
Besides providing system information, it also has some simple CPU and FPU benchmark tools.
A report can be generated for any computer and saved in TXT or HTML format. This can be useful to compare different computers.
Tried with: HardInfo 0.5.1 and Ubuntu 14.04
