Hi There.  We're a windows shop and I have had limited interaction with Mac users, but one of our executives is wanting to buy a Macbook Air.    Can someone assure me that, like previous macs, it has a native pptp vpn client, and that there is an rdp client available in order to remote desktop to a windows desktop?  Thanks in advance.

Yes it does. The RDP client only comes with Office: Mac 2008 or 2011 however. Also items such as ThinPrint etc do not work directly with mac so keep that in mind.

PPTP and L2TP as well as Cisco IPSec are supported out the door. But you can also purchase aftermarket VPN setups such as VPNTracker from Equinix.

Just to clarify, the rdp client comes with Microsoft Office for Mac, 2008 or 2011?
