How to identify CPU model on your Mac

Just recently my colleague asked me how to identify the CPU model on the Mac OSX. After some digging into command line stuff I have found below command. Might be useful for you guys if you like to do the same.

pytoniusz:~ host$ sysctl -a machdep.cpu.brand_string
machdep.cpu.brand_string: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P7350 @ 2.00GHz

Actually, on Mac OSX using sysctl command you can get a lot of nice information. Have fun.
