    Hello, My MacBook was replaced under AppleCare. The AppleCare on that Mac was set to expire in Nov '10. Is my replacement MacBook under the same AppleCare? I have a crack in my case and want to try to get it replaced under AppleCare.

    Thank you.

    Yes, it is still covered under the Applecare.

    Excellent. When I go to "view my agreement" at Apple.com it still has my old MacBook listed for the AppleCare. But it definitely transfers over to the replacement product?

    Applecare doensn't necessarily follow the original computer. If something happens to it that requires a replacement, the replacement will replace the original and will get the Applecare coverage.

    If the old one is still listed in the AppleCare and Apple doesn't follow the listed serial number, doesn't that open the system to abuse? Like bringing in a friend's laptop for service instead?

    OK, thanks for the info. Hopefully I can get my top case replaced.

    And about the abuse thing, I think when they look up the serial of a device, they can see if it has replaced another device through AppleCare.
