I brought a new macbook pro and I need to move all items (included purchased items from App Store) in iTunes to new one. How do I move?

Mac Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8)

    If only concerned about iTunes:

    Quick answer if you use iTunes' default preferences settings:  Copy the entire iTunes folder (and in doing so all its subfolders and files) intact to the other drive.  Open iTunes and immediately hold down the Option (alt) key (shift on Windows), then guide it to the new location of the library.
