I'm looking for the best way to set up the following:

1. I have two laptops, one a work laptop (Dell Ultrabook) and a Personal laptop (Alienware 13").
2. i would like to have two monitors, one for each which I know is easy enough, but I would like to be able to use one external keyboard and mouse that i could switch back and forth between.
3. I imagine I will need some kind of docking station, and perhaps a KVM switch, but what I don't want is for both screen to go to one computer. I want each screen independent at all times to each laptop.

Thanks for any advice
