The CompuSwitch from Raritan Computer (908 874-4072) isn't the sort of thing everyone can use, but if you need it, you need it badly. It's a book-size, $595 box that lets you control up to four PCs with a single monitor, keyboard, and mouse. Pushbuttons let you switch among up to four computers. The compact CompuSwitch may be particularly useful for small businesses or groups of workers that want a dedicated network file server but don't want to waste space on a separate monitor and keyboard.
