    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. :)
