Switching between 2 workstations sharing 1 display
Any ideas on the most elegant way to work this?
I'm supporting someone who's got two newer 15" MBPs but room for only 1 display on his desk, and trying to swap between the laptops seamlessly. They are both in clamshell mode. Ideally the active machine would be able to connect to:
- speakers or headphones
I recommended this KVM switch, and wondering if anyone with direct experience has a better solution?
Here's an example of a USB-C switch. https://www.kvm-switches-online.com/us3310.html
Just so you know, I just did an experiment using RDM
To set a 2017 13" Macbook Pro to 3360x2100.
From my other Mac, which has a 32" 4K monitor attached, I initiated Screen Sharing to the 13" Macbook Pro and was able to place the Screen Sharing window in the 32" monitor and fill the display.
Now looking at the real 13" Mac's display using that very high resolution it had very tiny fonts and such, but when seen via Screen Sharing on the 32" display it looks perfectly OK and very usable. Lots of screen real estate.
This is a zero-cost option, and something you can explore today.
