So I just got a new MacBook Pro (about an hour ago) for college. The computer that has all my music on it is a Windows desktop. The challenge: move all my music in iTunes from my Windows desktop to my new MacBook Pro. What is the best, most efficient, quickest way to do that?

Install iTunes 9 on both machines.

Turn on Homesharing on both machines.

Drag and drop your stuff from one to the other.
Or just listen or watch. Don't even have to move it for that.

Even have the option of keeping them synced, so anything downloaded on one is auto synced to the other.

I do this all the time, usually buy my stuff while on my Mac. Then when I go in to watch it on my Win7 HTPC on the big screen, it's already sitting there waiting for me.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
