I'd like to use the display with my PC desktop. I would also like to occassionally connect my MacBook Pro (2011) to the monitor. Any ideas? Ideally, I don't want to be disconnecting wires, but it would be okay if it's an accessible wire (i.e., I don't have to go to the back of the PC and disconnect everytime).


The PC has VGA or DVI inputs. HDMI would work too. The PC does not have Thunderbolt (no surprise there). MacBookPro has Thunderbolt.
