- yes, it contains everything, even your wallpaper and Desktop items.
- Does a System Image Backup fully restore your computer such that you don't have to load anything?
- yes. Edit: Just be aware that you generally can't read/write to/from the same drive, so wherever the image is kept (I'm excluding the option of having separate partitions on the same drive, which is possible but you need to know what you're doing) is going to be source from where the image can be written (ie. Windows reinstalled) to another drive.
- If so, can this be done with a new hard drive?
- yes, to a point; Windows would still need to detect all your hardware and download/apply drivers for the different hardware components in the new laptop. The most likely issue you'll face is that your license-key will give you issues as it's been previously-used on another PC.
- If a new laptop is purchased, can a System Image Backup from the older computer be used to "set up" your new computer? This assumes you are using the same version of Windows.
