I'm thinking of buying the new Macbook Air and I was wondering whether the Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter will work with my 23" Samsung LCD with a 2048 x 1152 resolution.

BTW I just bought a third-party adapter from Monoprice.com. It works the same as the Apple adapter and is far less expensive at US$6.65 plus shipping. –  Wheat Williams Jun 16 '12 at 19:38
Unfortunately I think they don't ship to my country. –  i.am.noob Jun 28 '12 at 14:20

Dual display and video mirroring: Simultaneously supports full native resolution on the built-in display and up to 2560 by 1600 pixels on an external display, both at millions of colors

I don't think the adapter has any impact on what resolutions are supported.
