I would suggest networking them via cat 5, it would transfer 100MBS and if you just transfer from one itunes folder to the other. It would be fast and cheap. But if you are like me, you wont have any idea how to network macs.

if you cant network macs(just like me)

i would then consider an external hard drive. It would be a little bit slower, but would be just as easy, but would cost more money if you dont allready have an external hard drive.

That is my honest opinion.

During your initial startup, it will ask you if you would like to transfer any data from another Mac to your new one. Just follow the onscreen instructions. Be sure to have a fire wire cable ready.
