    To backup your date you will need to burn it to cd/dvd's or a flash drive, or copy it to an external hard drive.
    That means any pictures, music, documents, etc. you may have that you would not want to lose. Also, don't forget to save any bookmarks, email addresses, etc you may have.

    As for your games, as long as you save the emails/receipts from you buying the game, you shouldn't have any problem downloading them again after you get your laptop back.

    Backup your games also, because sometimes there is a limit on the number of days you have to re-download purchased software from the internet.
