I need a powershell script which I can run against a list of PCs (Windows 7) and save the output to csv/excel.

I've done some searching and found the code below provides the raw data i need (but now need to get this data from multiple PCs and get the output to a file)

E.g. of PowelShell script:
$IDs = @(
Get-WinEvent -ComputerName IS-020115-RL -logname "Microsoft-Windows-TerminalServices-RDPClient/Operational" | Select MachineName,Message,User,TimeCreated,SourceIP,Id | Where-Object {($IDs -contains $}

E.g. of screen output:

MachineName :
Message     : RDP ClientActiveX is trying to connect to the server (Sophos)
User        :
TimeCreated : 09/06/2016 17:03:40
SourceIP    :
Id          : 1024

The specific info I need are the remote computer name "Sophos" in the above and TimeCreated.  I'm really under time pressure so am looking for the 'complete' script not hints please.
