I have a Mac Mini that is connect to a 30" WQHD (2560 x 1600) Dual-DVI monitor and Apple bluetooth keyboard and magic trackpad.
I'm building a Windows 7 PC and I'd like to have my work space setup in a way that allows me to share the monitor, keyboard, and trackpad between the two computers so all I have to do is push a button on some KVM-like device that allows me to switch back and forth. My questions are...
- Since the monitor is a Dual-DVI display and the keyboard/trackpad are bluetooth devices, do I even need a KVM switch?
- If not, is there a monitor-only switch I can use that supports a dual-dvi display?
- For my PC, do I need to install a bluetooth receiver to use the Apple keyboard/trackpad? I don't think the motherboard has bluetooth built in.
- Since the key layout on the Apple keyboard is different than a PC keyboard, what's a good way to manage the differences between the two platforms? Some kind of keyboard mapping tool?
Thanks so much in advance for your wisdom!
UPDATE: For the Keyboard & Trackpad, it looks like the Synergy software is the best solution. I still don't know how to share the monitor, however.
