Script to Ping/Resovle names given IP

I have a list of IP's that I need to get the computer names for and status. How can I script this?

Shorter, but without progress.
function Get-State {
        [Parameter(ValueFromPipeline = $true)]

    process {
        try {
            $HostName = [System.Net.Dns]::GetHostEntry($IPAddress).HostName
        } catch {
            $HostName = ""

            IPAddress      = $IPAddress
            HostName       = $HostName
            RespondsToPing = Test-Connection $IPAddress -Quiet -Count 2

Damn, those are some intimidating looking scripts! Thanks, I'll test them both out.
