    Ok, so I have a .me address called for sake of this bob@me.com. I never used this as an email or anything.

    I have my itunes/app store account is my personal hotmail account.

    On my old 13" Pro it was set up as "bob@me.com". When I set up notes on my RMBP it asked for a .me address but wouldn't accept "bob" as it was already taken (I know its mine! :)), so I typed a different one into it and it went through. Now when I create new ones on my iphone they come through to my RMBP but it hasn't synced the others because they were under "bob". Where as on my 13" it has synced them all but doesn't see new ones.....

    Is there anyway I can change this in the notes app to use "bob@me.com"? I just want to use one @me.com address...

    I'm a little confused by your post. What you want to do it make sure your iCloud settings in all devices are set to the same account. This will not necessarily, and does need to be, the same AppleID as you App Store or iTunes accounts. It sounds like maybe you are using an AppleID from iTunes for your iCloud account?

    Correct. My Apple ID is the same as iTunes/Mac App Store and has been the same forever.

    However now there seems to be this focus around me.com addresses and moving them to iCloud or something like that.

    So now I have my apple id (hotmail) and TWO me.com addresses....
