    Hi. I have ordered a new MacBook and was wondering how I get all my iTunes music and iPhoto photos from my PowerBook G4 to the MacBook. Thanks.

    Use Target Mode to mount your PB as a hard drive on your MacBook.

    Not difficult to do, but you can find directions here.

    Target Disk Mode will then give you the option of using Migration Assistant. This app is a little bit buggy but should be fine for the basics - music, videos, photos and documents. However, avoid the temptation to use it for network settings and other preferences. It's usually a good idea to manually reconfigure your apps and network settings. :)
