Currently i have a desk set up with multiple monitors and they go to different comps...

I was wondering if it was possible to have 1 mouse and 1 keyboard for multiple comps?

Having more than 1 mouse lying around is getting kinda old

Short answer -

Multiple monitors = yes

Multipal Comps = Not sure. Don't think so, though if they are networked then that may be a different story.

I have one keyboard and one mouse driving 2 workstations - max 4 with a Cybex Switchview switch. My boss has a bigger switch that controls 8 stations. The cool part... a keyboard sequence of ctrl - ctrl "device letter" lets me switch between computers at my keyboard.... never have to touch the switch. You will need the switch and a set of extention cables for the mouse and keyboard for each computer you are connecting to. Good luck.
