    Greetings, I just bought (not delivered, yet) a new MacBook Pro. I want to keep my iPad data and not have to reset or reinstall everything. I also want to transfer all of the music, videos, etc. from the XP iTunes to the new computer. I really don't want to lose the contacts or downloaded content.
    Will it be easier to do this on the LAN, or with an external hard drive? After moving to the Mac, I'll be getting rid of the old XP computer. I won't have the old iTunes, so I don't want to miss any of the files.
