    I have been using a 60gb ipod video on my pc for almost a year now. When I get my mac will i have to restore it or will the mac automatically pick it up?

    As long as you manually add and remove files, it should be fine.

    Isn't the MacBook going to see the iPod as a new and want to initialize it?

    You will have to copy over your iTunes library from your PC to your new mac. You can do this via external drive, over a network, copying to DVD's or CD's, or (although a less productive manner), using FTP or email. You cannot just connect your iPod to the new computer, because the iPod cannot transfer music from computer to computer.

    Also, since you are switching from a PC to a Mac, you will have to reformat the hard disk on the iPod. This is done by restoring it to factory settings.

    Hope it helps ;)
