This article explains changing the ‘System Product Name‘ in Windows 11.
The System Product Name is a unique identifier assigned to a computer’s hardware components. The operating system uses it to identify the computer’s model and manufacturer.
If you built a custom PC, there probably won’t be a model name of the device. A default’ System Product Name‘ will be displayed instead. Windows allows you to change the default placeholder name to anything you want.
An OEM device’s system product name (ex., HP EliteBook) usually cannot be changed using the method below.
People might want to replace the default’ System Product Name’ with a custom name for various reasons. For instance, if you built a custom PC, you might want to give it a unique name that reflects your style or preferences.
Alternatively, if you’re using a pre-built PC, you might want to change the name to something more memorable or easier to identify. Whatever the reason, changing the ‘System Product Name’ can be a simple way to personalize your computer and make it stand out from the crowd.

As described above, users can replace the default’ System Product Name’ placeholder in Windows with a custom and unique name.
