    Ok, so I transferred over all of my music/videos and photos to my new MBP....why when importing all of this does iPhoto and iTunes make duplicates? I dont understand...well which one (original or duplicates) can I delete?

    By default, iTunes and iPhoto will copy the files into their library file structures. If you let them manage the actual files, you can safely delete the original ones you imported.
