Good day,

I have a Macbook Pro, I have been using it for a few year. I recently purchased the new iMac. Is there a way to sync my iTunes? I am still using my macbook pro.

Not sure what you mean by syncing your iTunes? You can authorize your new iMac while in iTunes and then re-download music and other purchases to the new iMac.

I do have the new iTunes Authorized on my iMac. Not all my music was purchased via iTunes. My library remains on my macbook pro. Id like to transfer that library to the iMac.

For music or movies not purchased from iTunes, just copy them to a flash drive and then on to your new iMac. They'll go into your iTunes library. I do that all the time for items not purchased from iTunes and it works real well.

Or just turn on Homesharing in iTunes which will permit you to copy everything not installed on one machine to the other.

Google it - quite a few walkthroughs out there - although, I'm sure it has probably changed somewhat in Yosemite/iTunes 12.
