    I just purchased my first ever brand new Mac. I bought an older model iMac off eBay last year and fell in love with Mac. Here is my question, I know it can be done but I only want to do this to a certain extent. My iPhone 4 and iPad 2 is synced to my iMac. How do I only transfer the data in iTunes to my new MacBook Pro? I used migration assistant last night to move all my applications but I couldn't figure out how to do iTunes. And also will they merge with my new account I created? I know when I merged my applications last night it created a new user but the apps are on both.

    You need to start home sharing (not that syncing items with your macbook pro will probably erase them, but you will have the data on the macbook pro)

    To migrate iTunes in Migration Assistant you simply select the users whose iTunes accounts you want to transfer for migration.
