    OK. So you look in My Music>iTunes>iTunes Music. (on the PC.) Copy the folder to an external hard drive or flash drive. Then, on your new Mac, hit File>Add to Library, and locate the folder you just copied.

    Hope this helps!

    It depends on the size of your library, mine was able to fit onto a single DVD (by burning a complete backup in iTunes), and that was able to work, but if your library is huge, then you may want to consider another method (backup drive).

    When I migrated to a Mac the end of December, I loaded my iTunes library onto my iPod and then downloaded to my MBP using Senuti - worked like a charm.

    The only thing is that you gotta make sure your iPod is big enough - you don't want to take a million trips transferring your 20GB library back and forth on your iPod Shuffle :)
