Recommendations to connect Mac Mini, MacBook, and Dell to single monitor


I’m coming to the PowerGroup for help! I have a 2018 Mac mini, a 2015 MacBook Pro, and a Dell laptop (HDMI connection) that I’d like to connect to an HP 2509m monitor that has hdmi and vga connections. I have been looking at hubs but there are so many to chi lose from. If it could charge the MacBook, that would be great but it’s not a dealbreaker.

Thank you for the help!

I use a HDMI switching box (bought cheaply off amazon) to switch between a Mac mini and a Dell Laptop. Unfortunately I need a Keyboard and Pointing device for each, but it’s a compromise.

This also has the benefit that I can add additional computers if I wish, temporarily or permanently.

Is just using Screen Sharing an option? Not great for video playback, but very serviceable for many other use cases.

The HDMI switching box combined with this software might be a solution for @ShadyGrady

I’ve not used it but it was Andy Ihnatko’s pick on MacBreak Weekly
