Excerpt: The Mac mini is inexpensive, but if you have to add a keyboard, monitor, mouse, and speakers, the cost rises. With the IOGear switch, your mini can share peripherals already connected to another Windows or Mac PC. Simply plug the peripherals into the switch, then connect the switch to your two PCS. Alternate by tapping the keyboard's Scroll Lock key twice. The switch worked well for us, except that the audio output from the Windows PC had a lot of static.
