It seems like the DMI board product name would be more useful than the
system product name to print out in those messages (for kerneloops.org
use, etc) as the system name is so frequently populated with such dummy
values. My Asus P7P55D has the product name set to "System Product Name"
which obviously isn't very unique or useful. Most likely only big-name
manufactured systems would have a chance of filling that in properly.
