There's no need to sync the entire iTunes library to the iPod and rip it back out, and re-add to the new computer's iTunes library.

OP: If you have a big enough flash drive, go to C:\Documents and Settings\My Music\iTunes and copy that entire folder to the flash drive. And then go to the MacBook and go to Finder > USER > Music > iTunes and replace that folder with the one you copied from the PC. It should work, but do this after you first launch iTunes (go through the SLAs, settings, etc.) and quit it. Then do this.
