    I am currently overseas and only have my iPad with me. I was wanting to update to iOS 4.2, can I do this from a friends computer without loosing all my apps, music, etc, etc?

    Should be ok, I've updated my iPhone and iPad at the apple store and it's been fine.

    I think the problem is if you sync with a new laptop then you will lose your data.

    Personally I wouldn't do it. For the simple fact that IF something goes wrong, I'd hate to restore and lose everything. Not saying this will happen, but why risk it. Just my 2 cents...
