    Uncheck MIRROR DISPLAYS:
    System Preferences > Displays >> Arrangement >>> Mirror Displays (but know, that the display with the lowest resolution determines the maximum resolution used on both, thus one display will have a lower than native resolution, except when both displays have the same native resolution)

    If the external display supports 1920 x 1080, then yes. Mirror Displays, as said before, limits you to the lowest maximum resolution, which is 1440 x 900 with a 13" MBA or 15" MBP.
    It will also work in Windows (Boot Camp is not an OS).
