Hi all. Mac Newbie here. So here's my situation. I currently have a PC tower connected out DVI to my ACD 30 inch. I'm thinking about getting a mini, and I would like to have both the pc and mini connected to the same monitor. I don't want to plug/unplug everytime I want to switch between units. So...what type of cable am I looking to get?...A dual dvi connector? Im kind of confused about what I need.
Thank-you

what you need is called a kvm switch it switches between the two computers to one monitor the only problem is kvm's are not cheap and i am sorry to say a kvm is the only way to go.
