    Hey guys. I have a dell laptop for work and I want to use my MacBook as a second screen. Is this possible?

    No. None of the ports allow the MBP to act as a second screen. There are software solutions via USB or a video capture device, but these are unusable apart from static images due to the huge amount of latency.

    No laptop that I personally know of is able to do what you want to do, the MBP is not an exception.
