This command below will take all the info printed from lshw and stash it into the info.txt file. Round the memory to the nearest half gigabit, since some memory is always lost to firmware. For my two servers it was 4gb.
lshw > info.txt
You can get the info individually with the following commands. The class flag limits the print out to what you list
lshw -class network
lshw -class cpu
lshw -class memory

lshw -c network -c cpu -c memory
