    You'll need some way to back up like an external hard drive.

    On the old computer, navigate to the folder where your iTunes media is kept. Should be something like; Start/Music/iTunes. Drag the entire iTunes folder and drop it onto the external hard drive.

    Now, on the new computer, replace its iTunes folder with the one you put on the external drive.

    Everything should be just like it was on the old computer. You might get a pop up that says something along the lines of "do you want iTunes to associate with this library?" Select "yes" and you should be shiny.
