Powershell -searchbase ---adding other OU's

I have a working powershell:
Get-AdComputer -Filter * -Searchbase "OU=ouname, DC=domainname,DC=COM" | Select Name

The output is all computers in the OU, ouname.

I am looking for a way to add to the script.  I want to add more OU's, so the output contains all computers in active computer OU's.
Once i get this, I'm looking to get this to excel, but i think i have that part...Anyone already do this?

Attached is alittle snip of AD structure...

Generally you would iterate through the list of OUs you want to query, each time using a different one as the searchbase.
"OU=CAR,DC=domainname,DC=COM", "OU=CHP,DC=domainname,DC=COM" | ForEach { Get-AdComputer -Filter * -Searchbase $_ } | Select Name | Export-CSV file.csv -notype

But is there a way to add more than one OU for excel output, or even just to view?

I'm not sure what you're asking.  The code I posted searches multiple OUs.
If you mean you want the output to include some indication of the OU, then you have to include a property that has that information.  Perhaps you should use the DistinguishedName property instead of Name (just change the Select-Object command to reference DistinguishedName).
