    so i own a MBP and a Windows based PC and im tired of using two keyboards and mouse.

    that being said if i buy a magic mouse and magic keyboard (idk what apple names there stuff anymore) will it work on my pc?

    if so how would i use that to control both comps? ive heard of a KVM Switch but if i recall kvm doesnt work for bluetooth.

    any help is appreciated.

    I'm not sure that there is any solution for switching Bluetooth devices, but I got a really cheap 2 port usb switch some time ago from Amazon that does the job perfectly, my Keyboard plugs in (my mouse is plugged into the keyboard), and it just worked.

    Oddly enough, for work we recently got some "Proper" KVM switches which weren't as reliable as my cheapo interim solution.

    Go figure :D

    So maybe the best bet is to stay wired, and try a cheap USB switch.
