Powershell Export-CSV only gives one result

rstorm1 asked
Last Modified: 2014-05-14
Working with Powershell to pull computer name, manufacturer, and model from a list of computers using Get-WMIObject.  The script works in the Powershell window, but I can't get more than one result (the last computer in the list) in the output when piping to Export-CSV.   I understand that Powershell is probably overwriting the information until it reaches the end of the computer list, but don't know how to fix this.  Does someone have a concise solution on how to get this to work?
Here is what I have so far:

$a = Get-Content "C:\temp\Names.txt"
foreach ($i in $a)
    {$i + "`n" + "=========================="; Get-WMIObject Win32_ComputerSystem -computername $i | Select-Object Name, Manufacturer, Model | Export-CSV "C:\temp\MakeModel.csv"}
