Is there a way or a tool to tell me what the computer’s specs
Indeed there is.
There are various tools, including Windows itself, that will report
on various aspects of your computers configuration. Most focus on one
or two specific aspects, though, and make it difficult to form a
picture of your computer as a whole.
Advisor is a PC auditing program that examines your computer and
produces a one-page report of all the hardware and software installed
A very comprehensive report.
Here’s an image of just a portion of the report on my desktop

The report goes on to include all Users, Printers, Displays, Network
adapters and other hardware, as well as listing all installed software,
licenses (including product keys) and hotfixes.
It’s an impressive list.
Belarc Advisor also
provides a level of evaluation, letting you know whether or not you are
up to date on security fixes and the state of your virus protection.
There’s also an exhaustive benchmark of your overall security status.
(Quite frankly this last is overkill for the average user, but
highlights many additional things that can be done to “lock down” a
system to be used in a security conscious environment. Here at home, I
failed this benchmark. )
Belarc Advisor is
free for personal use, and a great utility for auditing and recording
your comprehensive system state.
I recommend it.
