Default Video Splitter? and...?

Ok,
well I'm planning on buyign a mac mini and I need to know what I need to buy so I can use the same Keyboard and mouse with the mac mini as I use for my PC, and I need it so I can switch between the two.
Anybody have any suggestions?
Thanks.


Chris

I have a feeling if they are USB, they should work.

If the keyboard for example is for a PS/2 connector, you could buy something like this that'll convert PS/2 to USB:

I hope this helps

*EDIT*

You could buy a USB hub to make it easy to swap between the two, as you'd only have to swap one USB, though there may even be ones with two outputs.
