    My computer took a crash on me and since I'm not as savvy as some people, I decided to get a new one. I would love to get an apple but since I would be sharing it with husband need to stick with a pc. Anyways the question is if I should go with desktop again or a laptop maybe even a all in one computer? Don't know but need something that is going to be good for my iTunes. I think I found a way to synch my iPod without losing any of my data. But what about synching iPad, even iPhone?

    Will I lose anything from them synching to another computer, to a new iTunes library? I wish I felt more confident on synching the three devices. I hope I do it right. Sometimes when I read the steps what to download on a third party gets confusing.

    Just want to make sure all devices will be taken care of.

    You can run Windows on a Mac alongside OSX, if it's any help.

    Yes it does help. I forgot all about Mac being able to handle windows. But my biggest thing I run up against is the flash player. A lot of things that I work on use flash player. Also I think Mac has problems with java script. That might be an issue too. I don't know I'm all over the place. I really do want to try a Mac but need to ponder a bit.

    I think you are confusing iOS with OSX. OSX has none of these issues and handles everything that I throw at it with ease.
