Sharing a 27" Cinema Display using an Atlona AT-MDP21 KVM switch

Quick blog post here.  Hooked up an Atlona AT-MDP21 2x1 Mini DisplayPort KVM switch to my 2009 Mac Pro and my 2010 MacBook Air.  Both run the 27" Cinema Display at its highest native resolution, 2560 x 1440.  Atlona documentation states highest resolution is 1920 x 1200.  Easy to set up and I have the Cinema Display USB in the back working between the two computers.  The only downside is the slight 1-2 second pause when switch the KVM from one computer to another.  Not a big deal.  Highly recommended.
