I recently got a new iMac. My iPad (and iPod Touch...and all other iPods) are linked to my G5. That's where i plug them into and they connect and back up and etc. I want to move that association from the G5 to the iMac. Both are set up with the same apple/itunes IDs. I know this is never an easy thing to do, because, well Apple. (Why doesn't it just go "Hey, I see this computer has the same apple id as this ipad. Would you like me to back up here?"...because, well Apple). The regular iPods, I'll just reload with music or whatver. But I do want to move the back ups and assocations and data for the iPad and touch. I found this Life Hacker Article with step by steps. Is this the best method for me to follow so that everything goes over? (I have lots of apps, but no iTunes purchased music and few iTunes purchased videos...pretty much all content is self loaded into non-apple apps) (I also do not belive the iCloud backup is viable in this endeavor).
