This may not be a popular suggestion; however, the only method that I
have ever found to be 100% accurate, other than opening the machine
up an inspecting it, is to query the manufacturer. Dell is pretty good
about this, as is HP. I am not too sure about others. Of course, if you
have added/changed HW after obtaining the machine, you would have to
factor that into any information obtained from the manufacturer.
