So, I'll be building a PC to use for 3D aniamtion this summer in addition to my PowerMac. I dont want ot have 2 keyboards and mice though.

I want to buy a switcher to share the monitor, keyboard, and my tablet(mouse).

I looked at www.gefen.com but those are $449 and thats a no go. Anyone know of anything around $100??


thanks!

... I know BELKIN makes some cheep ones too.

I have seen tons of ones in your price range


EDIT:


OH ... you want to have your mac and PC on the same KVM.... well What kind of monitor are you using? What kind of Keybord do you want to use? You can probably get away with using one of the ones I posted if your using if you use some conversion cables..

it all depends on what kind of hardware you have now
