Windows 7: USB Keyboard/Mouse Switch

USB Keyboard/Mouse Switch

I want to share/switch a USB keyboard & mouse with two computers. Can anyone suggest a single device to accomplish this?

In fact, my work area has an Ethernet switch and HDMI switch. Any suggestions on minimizing/consolidating any of these devices are welcome. Thanks.

See if a local store or your favorite online store has a KVM switch.

I'm not sure what to suggest for the Ethernet and HDMI switch.
