will my windows xp & windows 7 virtual machines that I run via paralells 5.0 work with an apple cinema display? & is there a procedure for using my 2010 macbook pro in clamshell mode or side by side with laptop open be any different than using it in mac os? I read that windows xp does not work with a cinema display & that there is something called winACD that helps it work. Will the display work with windows 7? Also, I have been linked to & read about Apple notebook batteries, for calibrating & how Apple recommends not having the laptop plugged into Ac all the time, but run it off battery every other day or so to about 50% how would this work with using my macbook pro with an external display? where I read that to use with external display, it should be plugged into the AC power. Does this mean I would have to disconnect from the display every few days to run off the battery as per Apple notebook battery maintenance? how would I use the display & still properly maintain my laptop battery? with my situation/current set up, would it be best to use clamshell mode? or just use my laptop open alongside my monitor like dual displays? One thing I have to work with is a somewhat limited desktop space.
