I need a switchbox that will allow me to share a USB keyboard and mouse between my mini and a PC. I have a monitor hooked to each so the video quality of the switchbox doesn't matter since I won't be using it. I just need to get rid of one keyboard and mouse. Any ideas?

Thanks
Todd

I hope you'll be using your VGA port, because DVI KVM switches are expensive. You should search the forums, there are several discussions on this here , here, and here.

Hope they help.

Perfect! Just ordered the Linkskey from Newegg. As I said in my message, I have a monitor connected to each so I am only going to be using it for keyboard/mouse switching.

Thanks a bunch.
Todd

Sorry, must have missed that monitor part. Glad to hear you found one though. Needing to use a PC shouldn't interfere with OS X goodness.
