Just got a new ipad to replace a broken one.  I am moving to a new PC also but haven't done that yet.

I am thinking I can re-download all the apps I had by going on the ipad into the app store, then purchased, then click on the 'not on this ipad' button on the top,

do I have to manually choose each app to be installed!?  : (

or is there a way to select all to reinstall?

Just plug the new iPad into the computer that the old one synched with.  You will be able to download all purchases to it.

They're the same apps and iTunes let's you pick and choose which ones to install before synching.  Why make life difficult?

If you simply must, then you will be searching the App Store for each app one-by-one and downloading it again.  So long as you use the same iTunes account, you won't have to repurchase.

I'm just looking for a download all button.  turns out that button is in the  win version of itunes on the new machine.

downlaoded all to the new machine, synched to the ipad that way .  thought I'd be doing it reverse - download to ipad, then sync to PC.

a) You gave me techincally accurate info as you pointed out, but it didn't answer the question.  

b)  I am trying to make it a single click reload to a clean Ipad / clean PC.

c) I found the download all button on my own.  Should I give myself the points?
