There are no such things as "stupid" questions. However if you think your question is a bit stupid, then this is the right place for you to post it. Please stick to easy to-the-point questions that you feel people can answer fast. For long and complicated questions prefer the other forums within the support section.

Hm, I think what the OP wanted was something like lshw-gui (or, on second read, maybe not).
Anyway, if you open the terminal and enter 'sudo apt-get install lshw-gui' I think you'll get a more complete picture. (Once you run the app, at least.) You'll need to try something else to see how full your partitions are - though partition managers work for that end, the chance for a regrettable incident is... not my cup o' tea. I also see something in my mintMenu called Device Manager. Pick yer poison!

System Monitor gives you available RAM and disk space, but for a detailed system information you have to install either HardInfo or HAL Device Manager. Both can be found in Synaptic (Package Manager). A shortcut to the former will be available in Control Center as System Profiler and Benchmark and the latter also in Control Center as Device Manager.
Most of the times, I prefer their command-line counterparts: lspci, lsusb, and lshw.
