    iTunes question-PC->Mac
    Ok, I actually have 2 questions that kind of deal w/same thing:

    I'm buying a Macbook Pro Unibody off of Macmall and currently I have a PC desktop that is 5yrs old.

    1: How do I convert all of my iTunes songs from my pc to my mbp?

    2: Same w/all of my pictures/photos.

    Looking for alternatives, cheapest ways, best ways, different ways, etc.

    Thanks!

    Specs:
    2,4Ghz 15" unibody
    you can just put all the data on an external drive and copy it
    or you can copy over the network

    if you're worried about the file formats not being compatible, they are, the Mac can show .jpgs and play .mp3s and pretty much anything you throw it's way, switching to a Mac isn't time traveling

    If you are near an Apple store, they will do it all for you

    There is also this page on the apple site

    As for photos, you can import and manage them in iPhoto - personally I have never really taken to the program, so you might want to look at Google's Picasa as an alternative

    If I take it to the Apple store for them to do if for me...will there be a charge?
