Let me throw Synergy into the mix of suggestions:
«Synergy lets you easily share a single mouse and keyboard
between multiple computers with different operating systems,
each with its own display, without special hardware. It's
intended for users with multiple computers on their desk since
each system uses its own monitor(s).
Redirecting the mouse and keyboard is as simple as moving the
mouse off the edge of your screen. Synergy also merges the
clipboards of all the systems into one, allowing cut-and-paste
between systems. Furthermore, it synchronizes screen savers so
they all start and stop together and, if screen locking is
enabled, only one screen requires a password to unlock them
