You can get a bit more information about your machine using the uname
command. For example, on my machine:

~> uname -a
Linux hpc-005 2.6.18-164.2.1.el5 #1 SMP Wed Sep 30 12:55:19 EDT 2009
i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

This tells me I'm running kernel version 2.6.18 (along with a bunch of
other stuff that is mostly irrelevant).

If you look at the files /proc/cpuinfo and /proc/meminfo you'll get
info on the CPU and installed memory.
