Moving my iTunes Library

K I know this may be one of the most done to death topics, but I'm wondering what the best way of moving my library from my pc netbook, to my new macbook including all my playlists and ratings.

BTW I got an amazing deal on a macbook pro today. 900$ for 2009's baseline 15" macbook pro, it's still got a couple months warranty, there's virtually no wear and I got office for an extra 50$.

In windows, iTunes makes a folder that contains all library files. If you have all music in that location, then simply move that whole folder to your Mac. While opening iTunes on your Mac, hold down the Option key to select your iTunes library.

If you don't have your music in your itunes folder, believe it's not as easy , someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Or, if you have an iTunes Store Account (free to set up) and they are both on the same network, you can just use Home Sharing.

Ok that was simpler than i thought. The technique i used, was to consolidate my library, drag the itunes folder to a portable hard drive, than connect it to my macbook, and drag that into the music folder. I'm sooooo happy to be back on a mac again.
