If that doesnt give you enough information, you can do:
cat /proc/cpuinfo ; cat /proc/meminfo

on Linux.

dmesg gives a lot of info. To narrow it down to what you want, I would use;
dmesg | egrep cpu\|mem

mpstat will also show the number of processors initialized.

Under Linux top will show you much of this info in the header if I remember correctly.
