laptop/desktop splitter

Postlaptop/desktop splitter by Chef

Hello

I require the following:

I want to have some way of using my screen/mouse/keyboard both with my computer and a laptop at the same time. Something that is quick and easy to plug a laptop into and can swith between them at the click of a button

I have seen screen spotters before, but I want something that allows both laptop and de stop to use the same mouse and keyboard

Any ideas?

A HDMI or VGA splitter is easy enough to come by and for the keyboard and mouse a USB hub is what you're looking for. I'd recommend a self-powered USB hub to minimize latency while also allowing for the use of more load heavy devices.

Peace!

I have been a nerd since long before I could have heard
That bookish girls should look and act a certain way
And I'll still be a geek when I am utterly antique

Almost suggested Shanks with a chainsaw! :lol:

They look like they'll do the job :)

Yup. Same one i was looking at.
Indeed. Or depending on your needs the Plugable USB 2.0 Sharing Switch with a USB hub might be better.
