Move Workstation To New OU With PowerShell

Question came up at work today on how to move a workstation in Active Directory from one OU to another. Here's what I came up with.

I hope this helps someone!

Import-Module ActiveDirectory

$computers = "PC1","PC2" # Optionally use Get-Content -Path C:\computers.txt
$computers | ForEach-Object { 
        $computer = "$($_)$"; Get-ADComputer -Filter { SamAccountName -eq $computer } | 
        Move-ADObject -TargetPath "OU=Retired Workstations,OU=Company,DC=company,DC=corp"
