    Another prodigious Forum poster (twerppoet) posted this a few days ago in response to that same question

    "In iTunes, with your iPad connected, choose you iPad under devices.

    Right click on the iPad and do a Backup.

    Right click on the iPad and choose Transfer Purchases.

    Explore iTunes on the computer and make sure all your media and apps are there.

    That will do most of what you need. To be on the safe side, go through any of your apps that store or create documents and make sure you email, or otherwise save them to the computer. Be sure to include the Saved Pictures album in iPhotos.

    When you get your new iPad sync it to same account and computer. Right click on the device and choose Restore from Backup. I'm not completely sure of the right sequence in the restore procedure, so you might want to grab the iPad User's Guide. But as long as you did the first part with the old iPad you should be able to fumble you're way to a complete recovery of all your stuff.

    Before you send back your iPad, be sure to Restore it from the main device screen. This will remove all your personal data and set it to the same state you received it in."
