You can use a tool like adfind from Joe Richards   http://www.joeware.net/freetools/tools/adfind/index.htm

adfind -default -f "objectcategory=computer" name whencreated -csv -tdca -nodn > c\computers.csv

That will output a list of all computer objects into a csv file that you can sort.

If you want to get more granular you can search using whencreated, good blog by Scott  http://blog.scottlowe.org/2006/10/11/finding-recently-created-active-directory-accounts/

If you are more comfortable with a GUI there is a free tool called adinfo   http://www.cjwdev.co.uk/Software/ADReportingTool/Info.html

See attached screenshot

Thanks

Mike
