Quick question I'm hoping somebody can assist me with:
My wife has two computers - a mac pro that she uses for work and a gaming pc that sits right beside it. The mac pro has the good screeen ( 30" apple plasma monitor ) and the gaming computer has a fairly crappy screen by comparison.
I'm wondering if it is possible to hook BOTH computers into the same monitor and flip back and forth as needed ( without needing to unplug it every time ). She only uses one computer at a time.
Any suggestions on if this can be done are appreciated.
Any idea what will happen if both computers are on at the same time? I know that common sense says to just try it ... but my wife won't let me do it until we know in advance that it won't mess her up. How does the monitor know which computer's input to accept?
Nothing should blow up (but then again it IS Apple so i wouldn't put money on it) so i say just give it a try. If it doesn't work it doesn't work, and if something bad goes wrong, that's what house insurance is for...
