    You can buy a monitor switch, works just like a printer switch. You have an input cable coming from the monitor to the switch, then two cables that go to each computer. Usually the switch will have keyboard hookups as well, so you can share one keyboard between the two, as things can get a bit crowded with 2 mice, 2 keyboards and 2 computers around one desk.
