    Hey

    I would just like to ask a question..

    I'm going to be waiting for a Mac Mini, hopefully there is a refresh coming this summer. Anyway

    I currently have a PC on 1 monitor, when I get a Mac Mini I want it to be using the same Keyboard and mouse, it is a Wireless Mouse 5000 and Wireless Keyboard 3000v2 from Microsoft using the same USB dongle.

    Do you have any ideas on how I can control the PC and Mac Mini using the same Keyboard and Mouse for each on only 1 Screen. Not at the same time of course but.. yeah..

    Someone pointed to Synergy, but apparently it only works with 2 monitors and I've also been pointed to KVM switches, but I'm not too sure if that would work on a Keyboard and Mouse Combo.

    Thanks for your help.

    I did this for a long time, used this.

    Worked fine. I have all USB KB/Mouse stuff, and it was no problem.
