    Yes. Make sure automatic sync is disabled in iTunes, and that both computers are authorized and you shouldn't have any problems.

    What does "authorized" mean? Does Apple have to ok it?

    No. You have to authorize the computer. Go to STORE in iTunes, on the computer. One of the options is "authorize this computer...". Click on that, and follow the prompts. Any time you have an ellipsis in a menu option, you will get a dialog box, expecting more information. This is where you tell the computer your Apple ID.

    This is good to know. I, too, thought I could only sync to just one computer. This is swell news.
    Cheers, Dan
