There's several ways to get this.
*environs* carries a lot of this junk which gets detected when you launch MCL.
(machine-version) pretty-prints some of it into a string.
(gestalt :|mach|) tells you the machine - look at *known-gestalt-machine-types*
(gestalt :|proc|) tells you the processor - look at *known-gestalt-processor-types*
(gestalt :|fpu |) tells you which fpu is available - *known-gestalt-fpu-types*
(:machine-type "Macintosh Quadra 950" :system-version "7.1" :appleevents t :processor 68040 :fpu 68040 ...)
"Macintosh Quadra 950 with 68040, 68040, Apple extended keyboard"
