I think there should be minimum amount of info which users are asked to provide for questions about hardware problems or performance: Processor, RAM, graphic card (and which driver is being used), are they using a SSD or HDD, kernel version.

This might not really be enforcable (and shouldn't be: If the problem can be resolved without asking for this info, why care...), but having a canonical answer on how to collect this info would be a good place to direct users to which fail to provide necessary information.


There are currently a couple of "canonical" hardware related posts. Please comment with any others that we could use to de-duplicate:

Minimum Requirements: What are the minimum hardware requirements to run elementary OS?

Performance issues with Intel graphics: How do I install the latest Intel Linux Graphics?
