    Dear friends,

    Before I had posted new thread about to buy MBA or MBP.. My last decision is to buy MBA. The problems that might face:

    * No ethernet - will buy an USB adaptor for it.
    * Usage an ERP program which needs Windows - Will use parrallels.
    * Office - Will use office for mac

    But still I have problems..

    * Microsoft Office Access - I do not want to use always Windows for Access. Is there any way to use Access in Lion?
    * Question: I will use a LED monitor, is it possible to have 1920*1080 resolution output ?
    * If I buy external mouse & keyboard (PC), does the right button click works in Lion?

    These are the problems that I might face. Also, if I use the mac always without power, I mean with its battery, does the battery life decreases in two years?

    Many thanks in advance for your usual support..

    If your good with SQL you can import and export data into a MySQL or PosrgreSQL data base. Then again if you are that good with SQL you wouldn't be asking the question. Your only real option as far as I know is to run the Windows version in a VM or in Bootcamp. But if your already doing this with an ERP program why not do the same with Access.

    Yes, the MBA will support a single 1920*1080 monitor. Depending on the monitors inputs you may need to buy an adapter

    Thank you so much :)

    I am not so good in SQL, I do the things on Access. So, I think, Paralles will help me in this...

    If the monitor has Analog in default, then will I get 1920*1080? Or do I need at least an HDMI or DVI?
