I would suggest looking at the Belkin Flip device. It's a little hub that takes the input from two computers (actually intended for the same laptop/desktop scenario you're thinking of doing) and has a handy remote to switch what input you're using with the touch of a button. The nice thing about these is that they also have keyboard, mouse, and USB inputs, so you can use the same keyboard, mouse, etc. on both devices without having to reconnect anything.

Depending on what Flip model you're planning on getting (either a VGA input or DVI input) you'll need to get the appropriate Mini DisplayPort adapter.

Take a look here:

Hope this helps!
