    I am planning on installing a clean install of SL onto my iMac. I am backing my itunes library onto my Macbook Pro, actually trying to figure that out too. The iMac has been running slow lately and I just want a fresh install to clear out the 3 year old OS.

    When I do this, will I have to reauthorize my itunes accounts? I'd rather not do this as i have several itunes accounts and I'm having trouble gaining access and Apple hasn't helped me yet over email so I may as well just call them up tomorrow.

    Thanks for reading

    Not sure about the iTunes part, but 1GB RAM is the minimum needed.

    You will have to reauthorize if you Erase and Install, but if you just do a simple Install (which is mostly the same as an Archive and Install from previous OS versions) you won't. Depending on the issues you're having, that may or may not help.
