You can use OCS Inventory NG?. It's free and work very well:

An agent is installed in all computer and report the computer configuration to a server that have a Web Gui to show all information. It is posible to make queries filters by many configuration values so i think that it is a good solution for you.

Hi,

Depending on where you have the list of computers you are interested in, powershell should be able to do that quite simply.

I have a list in SQL, but originally it was a text document.
foreach( $s in Invoke-Sqlcmd -Query ‘select distinct ss.FQDN as ServerName from dbo.SQLServer ss ’ -Database _dba_logging -ServerInstance someServerNameHere ) {
    write-output $s.ServerName
... etc

The results I store in SQL.
