    Is it possible to sync my music from my old laptop with a big hard drive, and everything else from my newer laptop with a SSD?

    Right now I'm syncing everything but music from my newer laptop (Lenovo X1 Carbon). My old laptop has all my music and playlists (~ 125gb).

    Could I sync just my music with iTunes on my old laptop?

    Both laptops are authorized.

    When I
    - connected my iPhone to my old laptop
    - checked the "Sync Music" box (not Apps, etc.)
    - selected the Playlists I wanted to sync
    - clicked Sync
    iTunes told me that I can only sync with one iTunes library and it will erase everything on my iPhone.

    Does iTunes mean that it will delete just music (I have none) on my iPhone, or everything?

    What exactly are "others" in your data?

    Am thinking iTunes media normal SYNC procedure.

    Others = through iCloud.

    Nope you can only sync your device with one computer.

    Could you re-ask your question? I don't know what you mean by "others"

    Music is on my old laptop with a big hard drive
    I'm syncing a lot of Apps and small number of photos to my new laptop with a small SSD.

    as in Music? How much would it cost to sync 125gb of music to Apple's iCloud?

    Even with the new iTunes 11 ?
