    Hey everyone,

    I just got a new macbook pro and am wondering what the best way to transfer just itunes from my imac (snow leopard) to my new macbook pro. I looked into migration assistant, but i didn't see a way to just transfer itunes (it looked like an all or nothing kind of deal). I do have an iphone with everything on it and would like to start syncing it with the macbook pro rather than the mac, so it's important all of my apps transfer

    If all your music is in the iTunes folder in Music, just copy that folder to the MBP's Music folder and then hold alt key while starting iTunes to select the library.

    I am just about to move a lot of stuff from my trusty eMac to my MBP including iTunes with Migration Assistant. Is it possible or do I have to go another route?

    Yes, Migration Assistant will work fine.
