A. The best way to check the hardware is to check the manufacturer and model information from Win32_ComputerSystem. For example, to check for the Dell M65 and 820, I could use
Select * from Win32_ComputerSystem WHERE manufacturer LIKE "Dell%" AND (Model LIKE "%820%" OR Model LIKE "%M65%")
To check the make and model of a machine, you could run the following script:
strComputer = "."
Set objWMI = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colSettingsComp = objWMI.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_ComputerSystem")
For Each objComputer in colSettingsComp
Wscript.Echo "Model - " & objComputer.Model
Wscript.Echo "Manufacturer - " & objComputer.Manufacturer
Here's the script in action:
