In the Apple ecosystem, what's the difference between an "Associated Device" and an "iTunes-authorized computer"?

Asked by 2davidc8 (4691 points ) October 5th, 2012

The iTunes Terms and Conditions says, in part, that “You may auto-download iTunes Auto-Delivery Content or download previously-purchased iTunes Eligible Content from an Account on up to 10 Associated Devices, provided no more than 5 are iTunes-authorized computers. Huh?

Doesn’t a computer have to be iTunes-authorized in order to have content downloaded to it? How can a computer be an “Associated Device” yet not “iTunes-authorized”?

Please help clear up my confusion.
