What KVM switch do I need?

I have a gaming laptop and a general use PC, both windows (8 and 10 respectively) I'm looking for the KVM configuration I would need to enable them to share monitor, keyboard and mouse. Laptop has HDMI and USB connections,the PC USB and VGA. Any suggestions please?

Take you pick from these

Hi Hastelloy, thanks for the reply. Given that the only connection from the PC to monitor though is VGA, am I right to assume that whichever KVM switch I choose will need to have a VGA connection as well as USB? Cheers

You'd need 2 USBs plus a VGA an HDMI. I might be wrong but I don't think any KVM switch has that combination so you would need one of these
