    Apps will be available for re-downloading as soon as you update your iTunes with your iTunes account information.

    As for songs, there are a lot of ways to transfer them, but simply putting them on a thumb drive and copying them over to your Mac and then re-importing them should do it. Don't forget to "authorize" your new Mac and "de-authorize" your old PC.

    Get a (free) iCloud.com account. Doing so *automatically* backs up your iTunes purchases (music and apps and books I think, but sadly not movies or TV shows) to the cloud and they can be re-downloaded freely.

    iTunes Match goes even further with the idea, but that's a $25/year add-on.

    iCloud works quite well. All five of my devices are in perfect synch.

    Does iCloud download all of your songs from your i-phone, even the ones that you may have added from a CD?

    As stated before, iCloud automatically makes a copy of all your musical *iTunes purchases* available to your other devices.

    iTunes Match, on the other hand, makes your entire *iTunes library,* including songs from CDs et al, available to all your devices (via some kind of internet connection obviously). iTunes Match costs $25/year and has a limit of 25,000 non-iTunes-purchased songs (iTunes purchases don't count against that limit, iow).
