You can either sync your new iTouch to your old desktop or your new MBP.

If you choose your desktop, it will be easy. Just plug it in and sync the check the songs you want synced.

If you want it on your macbook pro, you would transfer your songs from your desktop to your MBP. I've found the easiest way is to burn a CD or DVD with the songs on it and just put the CD/DVD into your MBP.

Then you have to authorize your laptop so you can listen to your songs. You can de-authorize your old computer if you are not going to use it because you can only authorize 5 computers to use your iTunes account.

Any questions, message me or post back.
