I have a dual monitor (HDMI) setup with USB connected mouse, keyboard, printer, and headset. I also have a 2.1 speaker system. I recently changed jobs and I now work from home. They gave me a small laptop (2014 Dell XPS 13 with no dock), but I would like to use my PC's current setup for my work computer. Is there an easy way to switch between my work laptop and PC, but still use the same monitors, speakers, and USB peripherals? Do you have any device recommendations? Thank you!

You're looking for a KVM - linking the keyboard, video and mouse. I use a four gang but a two wiil do for you. Not sure about linking the speakers in though. A splitter might do that so you can link both machines but stereo quality might suffer.
