"Our new retail customers can rest assured that these new products will offer the best value, quality, and reliability in the marketplace," he said.
Available now, the ATEN Technology cable and desktop KVM products will be carried by the following e-tailers: eCost, Newegg, Provantage, TigerDirect, PCC, Insight, Dell, CDW and more. The new cable and desktop KVMs are priced affordably from $34.95 to $179.95 and are backed by a very competitive warranty. The new products include:

"For home-based workers such as graphic designers, the ability to quickly and easily switch between Mac and PC systems allows them to work more efficiently," he added. "In addition, as USB devices continue to proliferate in the small office/home office environment, our new product line offers the capability to manage these devices cost effectively. Also, corporate office users who have multiple computers and need simultaneous access can benefit by having these units at their desktops."
Below are other sample scenarios depicting the use of these new units: — Access using a new computer to important applications and files stored on an old PC — Protect your new computer from harmful malware, spyware and viruses by surfing the Internet with your old computer — Enable laptops to be connected to full-sized keyboard and larger video monitor — Use one computer for CPU-intensive tasks while working on a main computer — Designate one computer for games while the other can be used for business — Multi-platform access to Windows, Mac or Sun (with CS64U, CS72E, CS74E, CS62U, CS62DU only) — PC owners who want to try Linux on one computer — Corporate users such as field sales force executives that may need access to both a laptop and desktop PC in the office
The new cable and desktop KVM line will be on display at ATEN's booth #616 at RetailVision. RetailVision is the event where new consumer IT products and channel programs are unveiled, retailer-vendor relationships are forged, and critical retail merchandising decisions are made.
