    I know the max. resolution on a 13 inch MBA is 1440 x 900.

    All my wallpapers on my current MBP are 1920 x 1080 and 1920 x 1200

    Could anyone kindly tell me what they'd look like on their MBA's (if you would kindly provide a screenshot).

    I just ordered mine and was curious how both resolutions would look like.

    The 1920x1200 will look exactly as if they were 1440x900, 16:10.

    If I set 1920x1080 as wallpaper, would it "fit to screen" and thus look ugly? or would there be black bars on the top and bottom of the screen?

    I hope it's the latter!

    I haven't noticed a difference when taking 16:10 2560x1600 wallpapers down to 16:9 1920x1080 screens. I tried it just now. 2560x1600 wallpaper looks the same on my way old 17" Powerbook G4 with a 1440x900 screen.
    You wont notice a difference, even if it would stretch it, it would be minimal and you probably wont notice it.
