Make sure you backup your iPhone and iPad before syncing to your new MacBook Air. After you place whatever new music and videos you have to the Air, you can restore the backup.
Also, you can select an option in iTunes before syncing that says you wish to manually manage music and videos. In other words, do not let iTunes do the syncing. That will allow you to manually add music and videos without erasing what's there previously. However, you should always backup regardless.
