Kanex just unveiled its SnapX today, a $69 switch that connects a single 24- or 27-inch Apple Cinema Display to a pair of Macs and allows toggling between the two.
The SnapX will connect to practically any Mac — iMac, MBA, MBP, Mini, you name it — through the display (or Thunderbolt) port. Beside standard video output, iSight camera images and audio can also be output through the connected Cinema Display. Bummer: The SnapX will also eat up a USB port on each connected Mac; and there’s no support for iPad output.
When he was eight, Eli Milchman came home from frolicking in the Veld one day and was given an Atari 400. Since then, his fascination with technology has made him an intrepid early adopter of whatever charming new contraption crosses his path — which explains why he's Cult of Mac's test editor-at-large. He calls San Francisco home, where he works as a journalist and photographer. Eli has contributed to the pages of Wired.com and BIKE Magazine, among others. Hang with him on Twitter.
