    Greetings all! Long time PC user that just bought a new Mac Mini on Ebay . My question is I need to run both my PC and Mac through one monitor if possible. I've seen switches that will do this listed for PCs but nothing says Mac specifically, and I don't want to buy something that won't work. Does anyone have any recommendations for this. I did a search and didn't really find anything. Thanks in advance Drew.

    the switches are just hardware devices that switch a keyboard or video signal and will work with any computer with usb, vga etc

    Yes, this is a very easy problem to fix. Find a KVM switch that has USB instead of/in addition to PS/2 ports.

    Thanks again this site is the best!!! Can't wait to get the Mini up and running. I hadn't used a Mac since I use to repair IIs and II+s and CPM based PC till I used one at a college the other day and fell in love with Apple again .
