    Well since im gonna replace my main machine i sync my iphone with, i gotta figure out how to sync it with a new machine. The new laptop will be re-setup exactly like my old laptop by restoring a disk image of the old machine onto the new machine. Since im goinng to do this, will i be able to plug my iphone in on the new machine and have it still think its using my same old machine and sync? Or will i have to erase and re-setup everything again no matter what?

    just did this a month or so ago when going from powerbook to macbook pro. it worked about 99% perfect. a few of the appstore apps didn't work but all I had to do was go redownload them to my phone (didn't have to buy again). I used the apple program that copies your user profile to the new machine via firewire cable (Migration Assistant?).
