I will soon own a laptop that I will need to use for work. I currently own a desktop which I use for my personal stuff, whose set-up I love (two monitors, my old mechanical keyboard, etc.).
I want to use that same set-up for work so that I don't need to work on a tiny screen with a tiny keyboard. However, it'd be painful to switch from my desktop to my laptop and back every day by disconnecting and reconnecting all the cables.
I want to know what hardware set-up I could use to achieve a way of easily transitioning my peripherals from one machine to the other.
The connections I would need to switch are:
- 2x BenQ GW2255 21.5-Inch LED Monitor (I am open to buying newer ones).
- 1x USB keyboard
- 1x USB mouse
- 1x ethernet connection
It has been suggested to me to connect the keyboard and mouse to the monitors if possible, so that only the monitors need to be switched somehow, I leave this here in case it's useful.
