According to the uname man page, the -i switch will show the platform, but in that case, you can additionally read the vendor, namely Sun.

You have to look at the manufacturer's serial number plate to see who made it.

Some customized versions of Windows (dell for example) add on stuff to make the screen display "Dell" when it boots up, etc. You would have to write a custom script for each vendor's machine to display Manufacturer information.
