 Additional information from dmidecode follows.  WARNING: Use caution when you interpret
 this section. The 'dmidecode' program reads system data which is "intended to allow
 hardware to be accurately determined", but the intent may not be met, as there are
 frequent changes to hardware, firmware, and the "DMTF SMBIOS" standard.
