Hello. First let me say thanks for reading and I will try to be as clear as I can as to my problem.
I have a regular but very new desktop PC running Windows 10.
I have a full-time at home job that is forcing me to use a laptop they are going to be providing to me within a week.
These people do not work from home so have no idea what is involved with having a home PC and a laptop both going at the same time and I have not even 1 extra inch for a laptop on my desk.
So, what I am wanting to do is use a KVM switch so I can use one mouse (wireless), 1 keyboard (wireless), 1 set of speakers, and 1 monitor on both the PC and the Laptop and will put my laptop under a riser I am going to buy to put under my monitor.
The tech people have no idea what to tell me as far as KVM (they are a huge technology/software/app company) switches or what to buy (yes I have to eat this expense).
I have used a KVM switch before years ago but on 2 PC's and at the time both computers had P2 connections.
I expect to press some combo of keys to switch from the computer to the laptop and then press the combo again to switch back to the PC.
Can somebody please point me to a product I can buy that will do all this but it has to specifically work between a PC and a laptop (I am not sure if there are different requirements for laptops). I have the specs for the laptop they are sending me if that helps. http://www.notebookreview.com/notebookreview/dell-latitude-14-7000-e7480-review/
My PC: Dell Inspiron 3668 desktop, 3GHz Intel Core i5, 12GB RAM
Oh yeah, the laptop has less RAM, grrrr, means it will be slower, won't it?
I need to buy something super fast because they expect me to start using it immediately.
Please help me.
