Question: Does LRA185KMM8-001 come with AV2108 or does that have to be purchased separately?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

The Avocent LRA185KMM8-001 does indeed include the AV2108 KVM Switch.

Question: What is the difference between this newer model LRA185KMM8D-001 and the older model LRA185KMM8-001? Are they the same form factor?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

Effective June 30, 2017, Vertiv stopped distribution of the Avocent AutoView AV2000 KVM switches. After June 30, 2017 the listed SKUs include the new AutoView AV3000 Series KVM switches.

The LRA185KMM8D includes the new AV3108 KVM Switch, rather than the AV2108 included with LRA185KMM8. The 1u rack mount console form-factor remains the same.

Question: the LRA185KMM8D-001 configuration includes the (Monitor, KB/Track pad - as shown in the image), and 8-port RJ45 8-port IP KVM, correct? as well as the description's note of 8 included dongles?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

The LRA185KMM8D-001 configuration includes:
(1) Avocent LRA185KMM Console Drawer
(1) Avocent AV3108 RJ45 8-port IP KVM (Note, built into / integrated in the rear of the LRA185KMM Console Drawer)
(1) Power cable

Question: Is the KVM switching done via one-touch keys or a arrow menu/cycle? (on KVM-integrated models)
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

The LRA185KMM8D console drawer can be switched using an On-Screen-Display (menu controlled with arrow), or with hotkey (keyboard combinations).

The LRA185KMM8D integrates the Avocent AV3108 KVM switch - you can find more information about the Avocent AV3108 here.

Question: Does the LRA185KMM8D-001 have remote connectivity through IP? Does this console work with Mac computers?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

The LRA185KMM8D integrates the Avocent AV3108 KVM-Over-IP switch which supports up to 1 concurrent IP user.

For the console piece, It would indeed work for macs but for sources you may need to map certain keys like Command to i.e. the start key - this is very easy to do and is built into the Mac OS System Preferences settings - and if you access the KVM via a mac, you would use the Firefox browser on Apple MacOS X Tiger 10.4+
