Get Computer Model with WMIC

Windows Management Instrumentation can be a crucial tool in day to day IT tasks. One thing I often use it for is getting the model of a server or PC because it’s quicker to type the query than go to the documentation and open the spreadsheet.

Simply run that as an account that has enough privilege to do so and you’ll get the model number of the Windows machine you’re querying. You can get a lot of useful information this way including all the performance stats which could be queried programatically.
