    Is it possible for me to just transfer all my songs from my PC to the iMac when I get mine in august? Like just plug it into the iMac and it would recognize it and then just upload all the songs or do I have to do that long process that it shows on apple.com? ust wondering what would be quicker and more efficent?

    The method shown on Apple isn't as convoluted as it looks. The bit that'll take a long time is transferring the library over. However, if you're keeping your PC then you could set it up as a music server and merely let iTunes on the Mac access the library on the PC. The downside of this is that you'll have to keep them connected at all times in order to play your music. Plus, it'll take a bit of throughput out of your network speeds. Depending on the netwrok, this might not matter.
