Hello everyone,

I am using stright DVI hooked up to my main box.. and VGA running from my IBM Thinkpad Laptop.

I am trying to figure out a way to switch screens for this monitor to use it for the laptop.. any idea?

Well not really..

Basicaly I have a work laptop that I wanna use my main monitor for.. but your right I do wanna do kb and mouse as well looking into it more..

Now I need to find a switch that supports VGA and DVI.. PC I wanna run DVI and laptop is VGA...

Man DVI switches are not cheap.. lol

Yeah, unfortunately the only ones I see with DVI and VGA are both over $200.
