    Interchanging computers

    Hi all. I currently use an iMac for my home computer, and have an HP laptop for my work computer. I'm considering getting something like the mac mini with a monitor. I'd like to be able to dock my work laptop and connect it to the same monitor. My question, is there a hands-free way of switching back and forth between mac mini and my HP? Thanks

    If you can't manage a KVM switch, then my suggestion would be to use screen sharing rather than a dock. Get a program like Edovia SCREENS and that allows you to access a remote computer in a window on your local one. There is very little lag if both computers are on the same network. You install Screens Connect on the remote computer and run the Screens app on your local Mac. There are other similar programs out there that are even more cross platform.

      Hi, I ended up using a KVM switch that can be switched by remote.
