    anybody know of a product like this (same slim design) but for 4 computers? (well 2 pc's and a laptop actually) because i want to use one mouse and keyboard.


    also i want to connect all of my three computers to a switch/router and be about to remote boot the machines which would be more appropriate for the application, a switch or a router?

    it will be tough to find one with 4x audio and usb, I don't think they make them. I've also seen them on ebay (found a 4x w/audio search 4-port kvm) ...oh and the 4x one's aren't cheap (sometimes well over ~$150)
