How can I share 1 monitor and (hopefully) 1 ADB-keyboard btwn 4-5 Macs?

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I have some older Macs which I only use for rendering LW projects. Its certainly not the best render farm, but every bit helps.

I would like to stack all of the machines under a desk and have a single monitor and keyboard up top which can switch between them. At the very least, I want to share the monitor. If each computer has to have it's own keyboard, then so be it. At least I can easily move these out of the way when they are not in use.

I've seen these things advertised b4, but I don't know what they are called. Any advice?

    Poke around and see which suits your setup(s) the best.

    [edit]: <a href=""; target="_blank">A nice ADB switch from Dr.Bott</a> This might be the best one if you're hooking up all ADB Macs.
