Is backing up just coping everything to my laptop?
It depends on what you want backed up. For photos, videos, and other files, yes you can just copy them to your laptop.
Gmail and contacts saved to your Gmail account are on the cloud by default, and don't require any action by you to back up (unless you changed the default). Other email accounts (besides Gmail) will need to be backed up.
If you want to keep other things, like SMS, call logs, app data (like game saves), etc. check out the Carbon app on the Market.
