    This is my first posting to MacRumors (which may be obvious).

    Is anyone using the MBA with Remote Desktop Connection? I am concerned that the program I would be running remotely may be be too small to read comfortably. I have only used it with my iMacs, and have never seen it run on a MB or MBP.

    I used to owned MBA and runs RDC most of the time for work. From my personal experience it works fine.

    Not on an MBA, but my experience with using MS Remote Desktop Connection has been that the resolution scales very well. When opening an RDC connection in full screen mode, the display is indistinguishable from using bootcamp.

    When using Screen Sharing to remote into my iMac, the display tries to show the full desktop, which makes everything extremely small on a laptop screen. MS RDC doesn't do that; it will scale the remote desktop to the size of the window you give it.
