Only if you want to backup your music and apps in iTunes. If you have music synced in the iphone backup then it's going to throw up an error if you don't copy the music to your laptop as well.

If you want to back up everything in itunes just migrate everything in C:/Users/(Your account name)/AppData/Roaming/Apple Computer/ and the iTunes folder in "My Music". Just make sure you have the same version of iTunes or newer on your laptop.

You need to go to folder option and enable the option to few hidden folders first. Then go to C:\Users\(Your account name)\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync and the iphone backup will be there. I'm on Wind7 but Vista should be the same. All apps and music are stored in the iTunes folder in "My Music" folder.
