    This may be a stupid question, but I've searched here and can't find anything.

    I purchased a ton of music off of iTunes to my work MAC. Instead of burning CDs and bringing the music home to load onto my home machine, is there a way to go into the iTunes store and re-download the legally purchased music onto my home machine??

    if i remember correctly, you have a 1 time "re-download" option... in case you lose your music...

    so i'd use that wisely instead of just being lazy..

    you can authorize up to 5 computers for your downloaded content, just need your itunes username and password

    authorizing a computer is different than redownloading purchased content...

    I assume if you just log into your apple account with the new mac you can just re-add them through purchases

    that only shows your recently downloaded purchases, so no.
