LG 5K 27" 27MD5KA - Any external devices I can use to switch use between work and personal macbooks? Is an external device needed?

I ordered one of these.
I wondered if I can switch between my macbook pro 2017 to macbook air (most recent) with it. Reading around the net it says no. Therefore, do you know of any workarounds? Any external let's say thunderbolt 3 switches, hubs supporting such function?
Thank you.

  • No. There exists a Thunderbolt 2 KVM switch, but the LG UltraFine 5K requires Thunderbolt 3. You'll have to switch Thunderbolt 3 cables between the MacBook Pro and Air.
