Just purchased another computer and need to get everything from iTunes transferred from the old computer to the new. Also, would like to have only one iTunes acct. How can I make this happen?

Run both computers on same network and run iTunes and log in to same account.

Enable Home sharing on both (on Advanced menu I think)

Now on the new computer you can select your old computer from the left side menu. Just select the files you want copied to new and drag them to the library.

Awesome. Thank you for the help. How can I transfer the apps, contacts, etc to the new computer. Will they just transfer since it's the same iTunes acct, or will the phone be restored?
