    Hey guys, I was just wondering if i get my new Macbook, if I signed into my account from a new macbook, that my content will be intact? If not, I have my iPhone, can the info from that iPhone (including iPod content) be synced with the new macbook?

    Just signing into the content won't preserve the content per se. You can redownload, but unless you have iTunes Match, you will lose information like playlists, play counts, etc. Much better to use Migration Assistant to transfer your data from your old computer to your new one. It will work over a Firewire cable (fastest), Ethernet cable (fast), or WiFi (not so fast).
