Iphone sync to new computer without losing contacts/etc

I have the iphone 4. It was synced to my laptop that is no longer functioning. I replaced the laptop and would like to sync to the new one. Itunes wants to clear everything to sync it to a new computer. I don't mind losing music, but I would like to save contacts and apps.

Is there software I can download to backup my iphone, then sync it to itunes, clearing everything, then add my contacts and such back? Itunes just can't seem to do such a simple function (or I just can't seem to figure it out because I am a smartphone simpleton)

    Afraid I don't have a solution, but I feel your pain. iTunes is fucking garbage about syncing. The first time I plugged my new iphone into my PC, it wiped out like a 15 hour save in Chaos Rings. Irrecoverable.
