    What's the best way to go about getting my itunes and everything in it (music, apps etc..) from a windows laptop to a new macbook? I'm afraid that I'll lose my apps and have to buy them again. I am more worried about the apps than the music since I have the music backed up on an external HD but if I try syncing my iPhone to the new mac it will wipe it out since my iTunes is empty.

    I also really don't want to have to go through a few thousand songs and check off which ones I want on my iPhone. I'm guessing there may be no way around this. My main concern is apps though.

    Any suggestions?

    You have several options.
    You can have your old stuff in a Windows partition.
    - Boot Camp
    - Virtualization: Paralles, VMware Fusion or virtualbox (free)
    For the iTunes, and iPhone, you can use Senuti to pull the iPhone content (videos and music).
    You iPhone apps you can get from iTunes again.
