You'd need an ADC to DVI adapter, which were huge and expensive, then a DVI to Mini Displayport adapter. That would get it connected anyway. Do you realise your screen in the MBA has a higher resolution than this 17"?

anyone notice that the MBA mid 2012 cannot work with any VGA device ? This is really a turn down since I need to connect to projector for presentation and such.
