    I bought a retina mbPro in July with AppleCare. I need to buy another one. Will the second be covered under my initial AppleCare purchase?

    Is this a replacement for the July purchase or an additional machine?

    You can transfer your existing AppleCare to a new computer I think. If not then you should be able to get a refund for the remainder time of the warranty and apply that toward a new AppleCare warranty.

    You have to buy AppleCare coverage separately for each computer. The coverage follows the computer, not the owner.

    If this is a replacement computer because of a warranty issue, I would guess you could receive either a pro-rated refund or Applecare would transfer over. Apple would take care of this.

    If this is an additional computer, you would have to buy a second Applecare policy...just like you'd need to buy a second insurance policy if you bought a second car.

    Enjoy your computers.
