Is it a relatively easy sync with a desktop computer, and will all my information transfer easily?
Contacts, calendar, task and memos sync relatively easy using Desktop Manager connected tot he BB via USB. You do need to set every thing up properly, but that is pretty easy. Emails does not sync, but gets pushed directly to the BB using BIS (Blackberry Internet Service). Your carrier has a BB site which you log into, enter your BB PIN and IMEI and then enter the email account info. Also chance your Outlook settings on your desktop to "Leave Mail on Server". Mail should begin to arrive in 15-20 mins if all is set correctly and then about every 15 mins thereafter, sometime quicker.
All syncs wirelessly if one is on BES, but you said you will not have that option.
I suggest you also take a read of the FAQ.
