    Subject pretty much says it all, but to expand, I'm buying a Macbook Pro in a week or two to replace an aging self-built PC. I have a large collection of music and I would like to move my stats over to the MBP like I do whenever I reinstall Windows so that I don't lose any of my playcounts. How is this possible in OS X, or is it? I would hate to lose all that data and find it hard to believe there isn't some fairly easy way to transition it over.

    So iTunes on the Mac is going to read the same XML file? That's what I was wondering, too, but wasn't sure if it was going to work or not.
