    It's called a KVM switch and yes, there are LOADS, assuming it's a standard analogue monitor. Do you want to use a PS/2 keyboard and mouse or USB?Ebuyer 2 port PS/2 KVM with cables £18.46

    Belkin ones are the most established KVM people in the field - used most of their products and really like them, but there are plenty to choose from...

    Word of advice: if you are looking to run at decent resolutions (i.e. 1280x1024 or better), make sure you get a good KVM with decent *shielded cables*. I've used one or two chepo KVM's in the past that have been just awful. Try to check it out before you buy.
