You can't get that kind of information through the browser --- security
imfrictions --- the info the browser can deliver is limited to
resolutions, screen dimensions (in pixels), usernames, IPs, browser
versions, installed plugins ... and stuff like that ...

You can't get hardware info without either a plugin to the browser, or a
seperate program that sends the info to the server for storage, where it
can be retrieved by PHP... or other server-side stuff...
