I need to add my wife's iphone to my computer

I want to give my wife the laptop I've been using and let that be the place where she has her itunes account. Right now, my itunes is set up there, though I rarely access it from the laptop. Rather, I'm using my desktop so I could conceivably delete everything that's on that computer and start all over again.

My question is: How do I get my wife set up on this lap top so all her music, contacts etc. are sitting there? I've got all my stuff backed up as well as hers. I just want to do this right the first time.

What do you think?

create a separate user account on the laptop for the use of your wife when she starts itunes within that profile, she can register her iphone there and all set.

Where is her music, contacts, etc., now?

She hasn't synced with a computer in a while, so everything is on her phone. Will her music and her contacts remain intact on her phone once I plug it into a new computer?

The phone when connected to the PC will appear as another storage disk without itunes running.  You can navigate to where the music is and back it up.

I believe the sync provides you with an option on which direction i.e. backup data from the phone.

You won't be able to back the music up as arnold describes.  But you can do so using free software such as that available at www.getsharepod.com
