The Servlet API is just for systems which need to provide a web interface. It has nothing to do with hardware details, much as it has nothing to do with screen displays, sound, database access and so on.
I guess you will probably need to write and/or use some native code to get this sort of information, and you are much more likely to get a sensible answer in the Java in General (advanced) forum, so I've moved this post.

I know you can get the users ID, browser type, etc. I am not aware of hardware, RAM, etc. Just like applets, there has to be some kind of security in place.
