    I am wondering if it's possible to hook up two MacBook Pros (both with mini displayports) to one 24" cinema display?

    I want to be able to switch between the two, obviously not use them at the same time. Does anyone know of a hardware solution that exists, aside from just removing the cable from one machine and plugging it into the other when i need to?

    Convert from mini display to DVI for each computer

    Get a DVI switcher

    You will get image switch plus usb2 and audio, as you might need to switch these services as well

    HDMI switch works too if you have the proper adapters.
