Matrix Looking for 2 x 2 Console Switch

    I'm a home user with 2 consoles. Each has a monitor, keyboard, and mouse. I want to keep 2 consoles as one has a chair and one has a treadmill.

    I have two laptops (one work and one personal)

    I'm looking for a switch where I can do both of the following:
    - Operate either computer from either console at the same time
    - Operate one computer from both consoles.

    This is so I can log into work and move from the chair to the treadmill several times a day without dragging my laptop, mouse, or keyboard around.

    I want to be able to do the same thing with my home computer on the weekends.

    The desks are next to each other so I prefer a wired solution. My work laptop is locked down and I can't install software or drivers.

    These are the scenarios I want to work.

    Scenario 1
    Console 1: Uses Computer A
    Console 2: Uses Computer B

    Scenario 2
    Console 1: Uses Computer B
    Console 2: Uses Computer A

    Scenario 3
    Console 1: Uses Comoutet A
    Console 2: Uses Computer A

    Scenario 4
    Console 1: Uses Comoutet B
    Console 2: Uses Computer B

    Before we can point you in the right direction, we need some additional information about your setup:
    1) What type of video connector does "Computer A" have?
