    Why don't you just write down a list of all your apps and re-download for free, i know you will lose your save data which is annoying as hell...

    i don't know any other ways :s, sorry, unless have you tried transferring purchases from ipod"option in itunes?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't apps transfer from your iPod to your computer if you deleted them from your computer?

    You would have to re-sync all your data. When I got a new laptop I had to do the same thing.

    Just re-sync it with ur laptop. You said that all of your music was on your laptop, so you don't have to worry about losing anything.
