I've got a macbook air (10.8.2) and want to use an external monitor with 2560x1440 resolution with a Linux (Debian) virtual machine. I want to use the vm in fullscreen mode, with 2560x1440 resolution. Will that work in virtualbox or vmware?

Yes; I confirm Debian runs Full Screen under VMWare on Lion at 2560x1440. enter image description here

    ... and since Virtual Box is free to try - you can start there or just dive in. Be sure you install the virtual box guest extensions before giving up on resolution settings.
