is your new computer authorized in the Store menu in iTunes? http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1420
Any restrictions set on the ipod for app-installation in Settings/General/Restrictions?
To transfer your data to a new computer, back up manually by right clicking on your ipod in the device list and choosing "backup". Transfer your purchases the same way, set up at least one contact and event on the new computer, to be able to merge data after your ipod got erased during the first sync. Use the manual backup to restore from and all data and settings should be back again.

Otherwise it would be too easy to steal info from a lost iDevice.Mac Mini Early 2010 OSX 10.6.6, G4 MD OSX 10.5.8 - iPad 3G & G4 Touch, iOS 4

Correct, you'll have to authorize this computer and use the same iTunes account again, to be able to use the apps and play the bought media from the iTunes Store.MBP 17'' 2,16GHz, Mac OS X (10.6.7), iPhone 4 32GB, iPhone3G, iPod touch 2G, tv160GB
