    If I buy a new PC, can I transfer my iTunes account easily from the old one to the new one? How does one do this?

    Your 'account' is held online, not on a pc. You can login and use any computer you want (up to 5 at once I think).

    Just install iTunes on your new computer, plug your device in and off you go. All you then need do is make sure your iTunes library is accessible.

    So how would I transfer the Apps and music from my iTunes library on the old PC to a new PC?

    Here is a very informative, step-by-step article outlining how to move iTunes accounts to another computer: Transferring your iTunes Library | iLounge Article

    I've used it to transfer my iTunes account from a Windows XP machine to one running Windows 7 (64-bit) with zero troubles.

    It also has some good tips on maintaining a clean and healthy iTunes account. Again, very informative.
