If you are using Microsoft Windows as your operating system, your system information can be obtained using the Windows System Profiler.
To use the Windows System Profiler:
1. Download 'profiler.exe':
2. Run "profiler.exe" once it has been saved to your computer.
3. The MathWorks System Profiler will start, and display all the configuration information of your system.
4. Use File > Save to save a copy of this information as a text document.

may suffice.
