    I get my iPad this Saturday and my MBP has chosen today to die. Why do the gods mock me?
    Here's the help I need:
    Assuming I can access my iTunes acc on a different computer, (and authorize said computer) will I be able to sync my new iPad and get all the Apps that I've previously downloaded?

    My MacBook is doing that "folder with the question mark thing"; and since it's a work machine I can't tinkle with it - which leaves me without a machine for a while. Too long to wait, anyway.

    Please help.

    Sounds like your HDD is on it's last leg, I hope you backed everything up..

    You'll be able to redownload your purchased apps with no problem. However, I don't think loggining into a new computer automatically populates it with all your previoiusly purchased apps. You'd have to download everything again manually.
