I have two macbooks:
- MacBook Pro 2012
- MacBook Pro 2017 with touchbar
Recently I've got an idea to use 2012 as a secondary display. I don't completely understand whether it's possible or not, the only info I found on this is https://www.macobserver.com/tips/how-to/imac-secondary-display/ It's said that this is possible if your second mac has thunderbolt or mini display ports. My 2012 does have it (mini display port). So let's consider it's possible.
It's said I need mini display to usb-c adapter. It's ok but not quite cheap. So finally we reached my question. I already have minidisplay to hdmi adapter. Now I'm wondering is it going to work if I purchase usb-c to hdmi adapter (since it's twice cheaper) and try to connect both adapters to each other?
