One Monitor Two Macbooks



I have on my desk now 2 MacBooks Pro a monitor, a keyboard and a magic mouse. For the two computers to share the monitor, keyboard and mouse I should buy a KVM but I don’t want to have too many cables on the desk and also the cost of the KVM for the macbooks is too expensive for me in Brazil.

I found an interesting solution which was to connect each macbook using HDMI adapters to the monitor and use a software to switch the keyboard and mouse between the computers.

I’m testing Barrier and so far everything is working fine.

There is feature very cool :  You can copy and paste from one computer to another.

You can see this video and see how it works
