SnapX switcher geared for 24", 27" displays
Kanex has introduced its latest accessory for Apple computers, the SnapX two-port switcher for Apple Cinema Displays. The switcher, which is geared for the 24- and 27-inch displays, enables users to quickly transition between two different Macs, such as iMacs, MacBooks or Mac minis.
The SnapX offers two mini DisplayPort connectors and two USB connectors, each with five-foot integrated cables. The accessory routes display signals, audio and iSight cameras through the Cinema Display without quality degradation, while a single button is used to switch between sources.
Kanex is currently taking pre-orders for the SnapX, which costs $69. The switch is expected to ship in September.
