    I'm consolidating some systems together into one area in my house, and have a new Mac G5 due next month-- and so I'm thinking I'd like to run all 4 machines off one desktop...

    So I need a KVM switch, but I need something rather specific:

    4 machines
    **DUAL MONITORS** supporting up to 1280x1024 on VGA
    USB Key/Mouse interface
    Hotkey swap
    Cross platform USB (Mac and PC)

    Can this be done for under $500? I found one from Keyzone, and one from Uniclass but they are both PS2 (which I can deal with with adapatation) and don't list anything for prices and I can't find a dealer.

    I also found the Belkin F1DH104U-- and their site says it's "coming soon" at $300+. I found one place on Pricewatch claiming to have them (and with a call claiming to have them in stock)- but the price is like over $150 under retail- which seems real shady.

    So, I guess i'm still looking.
