Transferring music to another computer

Hi guys,

Probably a real easy question so sorry in advance but I've bought an album off itunes on my MB pro. Now normally I buy and download stuff off itunes on my imac (that's where all my music library is stored) so here's my question. What's the easiest way to wirelessly transfer the album I bought on my MB pro to my imac and how do I do it?

p.s. They're both connected on a home wireless network.

Thanks for your help

I hate to say it but one of the easiest methods is to use an iPod or iPhone if you have one:

Otherwise mount your iMac on your MBP and copy it via the Finder.

Make sure file sharing is turned on via System Preferences on the iMac. Once you've done that it should appear in the Finder on your MBP then just log in and start transferring.

Can't you go to iTunes and just re-download it again if you have the same account, w/o paying double?

Don't think so since iTunes will ask for Back-up all your Purchased items onto CD/DVD. The best way back-up to your external hard disk or transfer using your trusty iPod.
