I was trying to identify a motherboard for relatives so that I could buy them some memory for the holidays.  (What can I say, I’m a romantic!)

I wasn’t able to find it via the Windows Device Manager, but luckily, Google turned up the answer: CPU-Z.  It’s a freeware program that not only tells you any number of useful bits of information about your computer (like the motherboard model and manufacturer), but also will export it to an HTML file suitable for emailing.

This is not information I need every day, but when I did, CPU-Z came through.  Thanks, folks!
