I use my desktop Mac Pro and its iTunes and iPhoto to do all of my music purchases, iphone games and apps purchases and manage my photos, and have my iphone synched to it, but I am going travelling and will be taking my MBP laptop.
My laptop iTunes/iPhoto has none of my music, iphone games and apps or photos on it so I know that if I connect the iphone to it and try to sync it, it won't work.
I would like to have all of the same music, photos and purchased games moved over to my laptop so that I can use it to keep my iphone synched and also be able to buy additional games and music and be able to update iphone games and apps while I am travelling.
Can anyone please advise me on how to go about getting the same stuff on my laptop so that I can use it to keep my iphone synched while I am travelling?
Thanks for any advice.

You're welcome.
Would copying my iTunes folder also bring along the purchased games and apps?
Yes.
All iTunes content is stored in the iTunes named folder located in your Music folder. You need to copy the entire iTunes named folder and place it in the same location on your MBP for iTunes on your MBP to be identical as of the time you copied the iTunes folder.
Can you please tell me how to authorize my MBP with my iTunes account?
At the iTunes menu bar, go to Store and select Authorize Computer. Enter the same email account being used for your iTunes account on your Mac Pro.
Will this cause problems if I try to use the Mac Pro for synching as well or will I only be able to use one computer at any one time with the iphone?
In regards to iTunes content, an iPhone can be synced with an iTunes library on a single computer only. When syncing an iPhone with an iTunes library on another computer, all iTunes content transferred to the iPhone from a different computer will be erased first. The same applies to photos transferred from your computer to your iPhone.
Contact info, calendar events, and Safari bookmarks can be synced with the supported applications on multiple computers.
You will be better off in the long run using one computer for your iTunes library and for storing photos in regards to syncing with your iPhone.
