    If a purchase is made through iTunes on one computer, is it in my account, or on that specific computer (hard drive)? If I switch to a new computer, will I lose the content I purchased on the previous computer?

    You can authorize the new computer and then unauthorize the old one.

    When you try to play one of your purchased songs on the new computer you'll be prompted to enter your iTunes account password. Then that computer will be authorized to play all of the purchased music associated with that account.
