i currently have a (pretty old, USB 1, no firewire) dell desktop running windows xp, and i just ordered an ibook from apple. what would be the best, most efficient way to transfer all of my files to my new computer? specifically, all of my itunes mp3's. it seems there must be a better (cheaper, faster) way than burning cd's of everything. i have about 3500 songs and an ipod. i am not aware of a way of getting songs OFF of my ipod (without using podutil, which isn't available for mac).
please help! i am so excited to get a laptop and i want to be able to get rid of my dell ASAP!!
