Hello All!

My name is Ethan Drower, I'm new to the linux desktop world (several years in windows)   I am attempting to write a script that updates dell desktop bios and was wondering how I can use the getSystemId command to return simply the machine model (ie T3500, T5500 etc.)  Any direction would be greatly appreciated!
