I'm moving to uni in september and wanted to setup my two laptops up to share one monitor, keyboard and speakers so that I could press a button to switch between them both.

My laptops I have are:

Macbook Pro 13-inch 2010 model (OS X Snow Leopard)
Advent 7109B (Windows 7)

My Macbook pro has a cable which I bought to output into HDMI and my laptop only supports VGA...

Can anyone suggest a way I can do it using my Macbook through HDMI and my Windows PC through VGA?

Can anyone suggest any KVM switches and/or monitors (22" plz)

I do not know of a KVM switch that takes HDMI and VGA. Does your macbook pro not have a VGA port? You may be able to get away with an adapter but then why not just use a VGA cable if your computer has a VGA port.
