    I just ordered a Macbook Air 13" ultimate and as the title says I can use my mid-2010 27" imac as a display for the macbook air or as secondary monitor, using the belkin mini-displayport to mini-displayport cable. Will this also work if the Macbook Air is in Windows 7 Bootcamp? Will i also be able to connect the MBA in bootcamp to a TV with a Mini-Displayport to DVI adapter? obviously not at the same time.

    I know that it is possible under OS X, but dunno how it is with Bootcamp. I use it under OS X

    Should work. Windows has been able to handle secondary displays for quite a while. ;)
