I am looking for options on how to best setup a home office with peripherals (esp monitors and a wired keyboard*) that will make switching from a Windows laptop to a Macbook and/or iMac a breeze.
There is intent to purchase a new iMac in the near future, so would use it as an extended monitor for both my Macbook and Windows machine. I want to minimise cable clutter as much as possible. And have a second monitor (so iMac + standalone monitor = 2 in total). I’ll likely get the standalone monitor before the new iMac.
I think any solution would necessitate something like these docking stations or similar.
Are there other considerations I need to take into account? Is what I’m proposing feasible? Has anyone already set themselves up with something similar (if so, some links to products you’ve used and/or a pic of your setup would be awesome)?
*I say wired as it seems to me the KB would be plugged into a device that is shared between the Macbook and Windows lappy. I’m happy to work with multiple mice - one per machine. Unless there’s a smarter way?
