Laptops output progressive video typically and 1080i is not a standard computer output resolution. The AE700 does NOT accept 1080p (1920x1080) resolution over any cable, HDMI or VGA, so you will not be able to send that.
As it is, it doesn't matter. You should only send 1280x720 video to that projector from your computer because that's the native resolution of the projector.
Now, if you are just wondering if your VGA cable will support 1920x1080, the answer is yes. VGA fully supports resolutions up to and potentially beyond 1920x1200 @ 60Hz, so your output of 1920x1080 over a quality VGA cable should be no problem at all.
The only problem you have is that your projector doesn't, and won't, accept that resolution.
