I know it's slightly off topic, but when comes the time to verify hardware details, then you might want to take a look at dmidecode(8). It's available in the FreeBSD ports as sysutils/dmidecode or from it's website at http://www.nongnu.org/dmidecode/ This tool enables you to retrieve things like bios-vendor, bios-version, bios-release-date, system-manufacturer, system-product-name, system-version, system-serial-number, system-uuid, baseboard-manufacturer, baseboard-product-name, baseboard-version, baseboard-serial-number, baseboard-asset-tag, chassis-manufacturer, chassis-type, chassis-version, chassis-serial-number, chassis-asset-tag, processor-family, processor-manufacturer, processor-version, processor-frequency, etc. It's also available for other UNIX flavors too, so it's nice when you have a heterogeneous environment where sysctl and uname don't have the exact same flags. I've tried it successfully on various versions of FreeBSD, RedHat Enterprise Linux & Ubuntu Linux.
