Rename a Computer Using Windows PowerShell

Short and sweet.  I'm sitting in front of a newly built Windows Server 2012 machine running only Server Core and I want to rename the machine.  It is a new machine not yet in a domain and I'm logged in with the default Administrator account.

It is easy with Windows PowerShell ...

Rename-Computer -NewName LABSVR2 -Restart

How easy is that?
