I'm thinking about getting a Raspberry Pi, but I don't have a monitor I can use. Is it possible to connect it to the HDMI port on my P50 laptop, and use the laptop as a monitor? I've seen this done on Apple computers, and it seems like it should work here too.

Your HDMI port is HDMI-out. You need an HDMI-in (capture) port. You would need to add a capture port, either via your Express Card slot or your Thunderbolt port

I checked and thunderbolt support is limited (at best). What are you trying to use the monitor for? I ask, because there is a difference in video capture adapters if you are playing high-speed games vs. using the video for office applications on a smaller device.
