    Sync the laptop and Iphone.

    Make sure iTunes on the Win 7 machine doesn't automatically sync to the local library. Import everything from the iPhone.

    Install Itunes on the new PC. Open Itunes and make sure auto-sync is disabled. Copy the Itunes folder (mymusic\itunes) and overwrite. Open up Itunes and all your stuff should be there.

    This works for music, I assume it would be the same for the Iphone.
