    O.K. I searched for an answer but I am quite unsure how to do this. Basically I plan to get a 24" external monitor to mainly use with my MacBook Pro. Also I would like to get a bluetooth keyboard and mouse. But I would also like to use all of them with my PC if/when I decide to use it. I have used KVM Switches before but never with bluetooth. Does anyone know a good solution for this? Should I just get a wired mouse and keyboard?

    Right now I have an older 19" LCD for my PC.

    It was because you were being a smart butt :p

    I did google it and came up with little. But how would it work as far as getting Bluetooth adapter and such? Would I just need one of those and a Bluetooth adapter in my PC?

    I used a search engine more

    After looking around more I came up with Synergy which seems to work well. But now what do you guys do about switching your monitor? If I got a monitor with VGA and DVI could I hook them both up and tune to that port when I want to switch?

    Yes, you could do that. You could also use your macbook and PC/external screen at the same time.
