Hi all, Im a long time, experienced Windows user, and have been considering making the jump to a Mac for a while now. Ive been doing a lot of reading here for the past month or so and have picked up lots of useful and interesting information about Macs in general, and the new Macbook Pros. Im ready to make the leap and plan to order a 17 inch with a 500GB HDD and an antiglare screen later this week. All this has been leading up to an iTunes question! I currently have iTunes installed on my Windows 7 laptop with all the music stored on a share on my NAS. iTunes is used to manage a couple of iPhones, an iPad and an iPod, and has been giving me a few problems in recent months. When I get my new Mac, rather than migrating my current iTunes setup to it I would like to setup a new iTunes library for a couple of reasons; 1. I think it would be a good opportunity for a cleanup. 2. I want to remove any possibility of transferring the previously mentioned problems over from my current iTunes setup. Im not concerned about playlists as I know these can be exported from the old library and Im not too bothered about the other stats that are recorded, such as play counts etc. I do have some concerns over the implications this has for the iPhones, iPad and downloaded Apps. First up, the Apps. If I understand correctly, when I login to my iTunes account on my new Mac, I should be able to re-download all of my previously downloaded Apps for no additional charge. Is this correct? Regarding the iPad, and especially the iPhones. When these are connected to the Mac for the first time and synced in iTunes will it wipe the current data from them as they are synced with iTunes on a different computer? If so, is there a way around this? Would doing a sync and backup on my current Windows iTunes setup and then transferring the backup file to the Mac and performing a restore back to the iPhones be a solution? I would be really interested to hear all your input. Apologies for the length of this post for what Im sure are some very simple questions.
