prtconf is a good starter.

Another one is "lscfg".

If you want to know details about a specific device enter:

lsattr -El <device>

For instance, if you want to know the processor speed (sample output taken from a p671):

# lsattr -El proc0
frequency 1099991368     Processor Speed False
state     enable         Processor state False
type      PowerPC_POWER4 Processor type  False

or, if you want to know details about a specific disk (sample from a 18GB SCSI disk):
# lsattr -El hdisk0
PCM             PCM/friend/scsiscsd              Path Control Module           False
algorithm       fail_over                        Algorithm                     True
dist_err_pcnt   0                                Distributed Error Percentage  True
dist_tw_width   50                               Distributed Error Sample Time True
hcheck_interval 0                                Health Check Interval         True
hcheck_mode     nonactive                        Health Check Mode             True
max_transfer    0x40000                          Maximum TRANSFER Size         True
pvid            00354fca40d7c50c0000000000000000 Physical volume identifier    False
queue_depth     3                                Queue DEPTH                   False
reserve_policy  single_path                      Reserve Policy                True
size_in_mb      18200                            Size in Megabytes             False
