    Hi guys. Im think about getting an iMac. One of the things I will need is Windows 7 (due to work). Is there anyway to get my iTunes library to be in sync with each OS depending on which one I boot? For example i sync my iphone (with new songs) onto iTunes on windows and when i head back to OSX everything will be transferred? and will it go the opposite way? Its just i would swap different OSes depending on what im doing, but dont really want to force myself to boot to a certain OS just to sync all my apps/music etc .... If theres a way of doing it thatd be great!

    I assume this cant be done then? :( Anyone suggest an alternative? or am I just gonna have to stick to a certain OS?

    Try to transfer the library to an external hdd/flash drive. Don't if it works but its worth a try

    Rather than bootcamping i think I'll check out parallels. Cheers anyway!

    I use VMware for Win 7, much easier than rebooting all the time to access those few Windows only programs the job requires.

    Cheers,
