I have 1,500 computers on my Active Directory list. I want to delete those who are not able to log in for the last few months. But my problem is I don’t know much about AD and I don’t know where or how to locate various computers in Active Directory. And also, I want to make my work fast. Is there any tool that can illustrate some ways to insert multiple computer names? Please help me. Thank you.
Search various computers on AD
Windows active directory managing is very easy. Yes there is a way by which you can do your job and save your time also.

Now below you can see a field box. Choose the user and then choose start with. In the same way you can add multiple names and click on search. Its means for multiple names you have to follow the same way, but here you have to add multiple names.
And another way is:
you can use Oldcmp by Joe Richardson (Directory Services MVP):
Not only lists all computer accounts that have not updated their passwords in x amount of days, but also deletes them for you
