    Hardware to share just the mouse between Mac and PC?
    I'm wondering if there is somesort of hardware that will enable me to use my USB mouse on my iMac and my PC. I have two keyboards (Apple Pro keyboard and a Logitech keyboard for my PC), I don't mind using two separate keyboards but it would be nice to use just one mouse between the two.

    Would a regular KVM switch work??

    *begin Fantasy Thought*
    Wouldn't it be cool if my Mac and PC could act as a dual display, like if I move my mouse on my Mac to far to the right edge of my iMac screen the mouse would rollover to my PC screen and be usable. [/FantasyThought]

    Just get a USB switch, most of the cheaper KVMs still use PS/2 and you are probably using a USB mouse.

    This should work: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...107-348&depa=0

    Thanks, I found the same thing at CompUSA for the same price so I'll save a little on shipping and pick one up tonight and see how it works.

    Thanks for the reply.
