    Wow - OK - you say you synched with your new laptop. But you must have synched the iPad with another computer previously - you need an initial sync for a new iPad when you first switch it on. Does that other computer have all your photos and apps on it?

    One rule that most members follow - sync your iPad with only one computer.

    So, if the other computer is available, resync with that one and everything should be restored.

    Get back to us if this answer doesn't solve your problem.

    You can only "Sync" with one PC unless you set it up to manually manage stuff like music, video's.
    If you sync with a new PC, everything is cleared out and stuff from the new PC is loaded on the ipad.

    The following article from apple goes through the process of backing up and seting up a new device. If you have access to the original computer that you had synced with you should be able to recover the data.

    If you can find a backup from the location discussed in the previous article i mentioned you should be able to copy that over to the new computer and do a restore from that. This is not the restore in the summary pane for the ipad in itune. You need to control click the ipad in itunes and you will get an option to restore from backup, you can then select which backup to restore from. You can also transfer purchases.
