    Right click delete in ADUC would do it although I suspect there is more to your question than you have posted.
    Do you know which machines are unused or do you want to find a way to determine which ones aren't used?
    cheers

          There is also possibly dsquery
          Code:
          dsquery computer "ou=desktops,dc=domain,dc=com" -inactive 4 -limit 0
