is there a "how to identify your computer" tutorial?

Because it would be great to link to when helping those that do not know what their computer is, or by what we mean by "what is your computer/GPU/HD/eta?"
I'll make one if there isn't one, but I will need example pictures (preferably with any S/N's already removed)
thanks.

or type in the search box 'system information'. Windows has a built in tool that parses all of the info into a relatively easy to read format.
