    This script uses WMI to determine the Asset Tag.  Hardware vendors can place the Asset TagSerial in several locations in WMI.  This script is using the Win32_SystemEnclosure SerialNumber.  This has been tested against Dell and HP with consistent success.  Other hardware vendors may or may not utilize the same WMI value for storing their information.
