Help me manage my music library! I have circa 25GB of music, and I would like to know the best (least effort) way of keeping it up to date across my devices including
syncing my playlists.

The devices in question are:
- Windows 7 desktop PC (music currently in iTunes, legacy of a long-abandoned iPhone)
- MacBook with Snow Leopard
- Android phone, currently a HTC Desire
The main issues with the current setup are that any additions to the primary library on the desktop have to be manually transferred to the laptop. Files aren't a big issue but when I mess around with playlists is where it really gets to be a pain. I am particularly attached to my playlists and having to make them twice over for the two computers is more than slightly annoying.
In addition to this, the HTC Sync software's communication with iTunes is somewhat iffy. It only likes to sync either all audio files (doesn't distinguish between podcasts and music for example) or selected playlists.
Bonus question: I like to walk through the door listening to music and turn on my PC. It would be fantastic to have playback seamlessly switch from my phone to computer. Any software out there known to do this effectively?
