after multiple repairs and no fix, apple finally decided to give me a new imac(though i havent received it yet. they say it's gonna take 1 month-_-). i am 2 weeks shy from my 1 year warranty. i asked them whether i can register the applecare using my old serial number and they told me that there's no need for it coz the new machine will come with an added 1 yr warranty just like a brand new machine. i was wondering, if i were to register my applecare and end up having to replace the machine again within a year, will my warranty continue from that point or will my remaining applecare warranty period be burned?
