    I can only speak on my own experience but I would not recommend it. I upgraded to HS on my late 2012 iMac and I wish I hadn't. For me this OS is slow and buggy. Sure, my machine is getting up in years but up until High Sierra I had not experienced any OS issues.

    Question for a more experienced iTunes user than I am. I got a new laptop and want to be able to sync my phone with it. I downloaded iTunes on the new computer and see that everything I bought from iTunes is on there. How exactly do I get the rest of my music into this iTunes without having to re-rip everything?

    use an external hard drive to transfer it over to the new computer (or a network transfer - https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204445 ) and put it in the iTunes media folder. then just drag it all into iTunes (if you organize your library chronologically like me, you will want to add them one album at a time, which can be VERY time consuming). you can also use migration assistant to transfer files, but it can get a bit annoying.

    Yeah, I just point my iTunes media to an external drive and keep bringing that forward when I get a new machine. Saves so much time. And after my last external took a dive off my desk and became nonfunctioning, I've decided that as I encode thing, I'll also back up on to thumb drives and keep those somewhere safe.

    You need to get the entire iTunes folder including the library files (e.g., .itdb, .itml, .xml) onto your new computer. So, you can:

    1). Copy the entirety of the iTunes folder from your old computer onto an external hard drive, USB stick, etc. Then, you guessed it, copy that from your temporary storage space onto the new computer. Ensure you are signed in to your (old) Apple ID account, and that the new computer is authorized to play purchases.

    2). If you don't have somewhere to dump the folder to, you can use Migration Assistant on PC or Mac.

    3). iTunes Match ($$$; beaten by allegro).

    yeah, that's what i do, too. my library is actually located on the external drive so it doesn't take up room on my computer.

    Well.. my wife and I tried android for a year and a half. It was pretty cool but Apple finally called us back. Switched to the 8 plus. Just love this body size. Hated how all the samsungs have the edge feature now. (We had the edge s7) We had the 6 plus before it. Feels good to be back to the iPhone plus body shape. Showbox doesnt work anymore so no need to have the samsung except for backup mp3 player haha.

    I've has iPhones since I started getting smart phones, and don't think I'd go to any other brand unless something major happened. Currently have my new baby, 7plus, and I am in love. Whenever I have to do something on my husband's Androids over the years, it's just so slow to respond to touch, it's not as accurate, it feels cheap in my hand, the camera has a hard time focusing and even then everything's a little soft. Not to mention a few times he has had to suddenly replace his phone, and in the meantime used my older iPhones... because even an iPhone 4s lasted longer (my 5s is still in great condition, and will be used as a backup/iPod).
    I don't care about the "name brand", I care that it's a great product that just works so well for me. I don't need something where I can change the font on Facebook. I don't need something that will hold my entire music library on the device.

    I agree that I feel the same way when using an Android device. However, I think my father's Google Pixel 2 is the first non iPhone I've wanted. The call clarity is unbelievable; you don't realize how accustomed we've become to "digitized" voice until you hear someone crystal clear.

    I personally do need something that holds my entire music library, since I have Apple Music and also add my own lossless rips. It's been a real adjustment from a 256GB to a 64GB.
