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.
