I've got the latest MacBook Pro, which has only Thunderbolt 3 ports.

And yes, no KVM use will be needed after I get rid of my Dell laptop.

But what I was hoping to do was use that Dell laptop screen as an external monitor for my MacBook. But I doubt that's possible because the Dell laptop likely has only output video, not any video input to use the laptop's screen to show a different computer's video out.

Plus, one can get external monitors really cheap these days, so that's likely the route I'll go. I don't need a big monitor, just a small one for showing the windows I like to keep always open (such as Slack and Google Hangouts - yes, I work all day with people on both systems) but not on my primary/center monitor.
