Yes, it's possible. Just authorize your new Mac in iTunes and then you'll be able to use both.

Then when the iPod is connected to iTunes via USB, reboot the i{Pod and then it should show in iTunes for you.

I believe chas is correct about being able to only sync from one machine. I'm trying to remember what I did when I had both Macs here at home and I do believe I could only use one of them to download (sync) music to my iPods. I could however, manually copy our home recordings from iTunes on both machines. (Which is not the same as syncing.)

Something is amiss then, because i have had multiple friends connect their iPod/iPhone/iPad to my Mac to charge it and the first thing i do is go into iTunes and Disconnect them from the sidebar so nothing accidentally gets click and sync or something worse happens. They ALWAYS show up in my iTunes. . .
