    Not sure whether this is the right forum or not.

    Basically I had all my iTunes stuff on my PC, which I've since had to restore completely.

    I bought my MBP and now use that as my only computer.

    Is there a way of syncing my phone upto this lappy and having all my existing music and apps remain on my phone?

    Yes. (assuming you've not wiped your PC)


    Music

    Go to your PC
    Open iTunes
    Click file -> library -> backup to disc
    Go grab a few DVD's burn to them
    Take to macbook pro and insert discs


    Apps

    Authorise your macbook pro
    Click Store -> Authorise this computer
    Enter iPhone Apple id details
    Click File -> Transfer purchases from iPod/iPhone

    Job Done

    You don't need to burn to DVD's if you have a USB Hardrive. You can just copy the entire library and paste it into the new computers iTunes librbary.. I just did this a month ago or so.
