I personally own 2 laptops and sometime when I use them as the same time I have to switch physically. I also have 2 desktop machines at home that I had to control sometimes but they are in seperate room. I was using remote desktop but it was not a great experience so I found this.
Use your Laptop as a monitor
Multi Monitor Software
MaxiVista allows you to use a Laptop as a second monitor for your primary computer. No extra multi monitor hardware is required. Simply extend program windows across multiple screens as if it were one big monitor. Increase your productivity by using a multiple monitor software.
Control up to four computers from a single keyboard and mouse – Just move the mouse cursor to the computer you would like to control with the software KVM feature. Save yourself from juggling multiple mice and keyboards. No need to buy expensive kvm switches.
The Clipboard Sharing feature transfers the clipboard data amongst all computers. Whatever you copy to the clipboard of one PC becomes available in all other computer’s clipboards as well. Synchronizing the Clipboard has never been so easy.
Mirror your computer screen to another PC via any network connection without any loss in picture quality.
MaxiVista is a must for everybody who has more than one computer on their desk.
I strongly recommend you to buy if own multiple laptops 🙂
