The Gefen EXT-MINIPCMAC is a mini PC/MAC cross platform switch which allows you to switch between any combination of two different computers (PC and Mac) - using only one keyboard, monitor and mouse.

How the Gefen mini PC/MAC switch works:

The mini PC/Mac switches between two computers located near each other. Simply plug your peripherals directly into the switch, connect the cables to the computers you want to control and select the computer you want to work on.  The mini PC/Mac allows you to choose between the Macintosh or PC keyboard/video/mouse combination. Switching between computers is done from the keyboard, F11, or by Gefen's RMT-16 remote control unit (sold separately).
