    I purchased a 15" 2.66GHz Macbook Pro on 03/21/2010 from a local Apple reseller/repair shop (but not a "Apple Store"). I paid $1,999.00 for the Macbook Pro and $324.00 for the Applecare Warranty. I was interested in returning it to the store (30-day return policy + 10% restocking fee) to get a new Macbook. However I was informed that they could refund the laptop (with 10% restocking fee) but not the Applecare Warranty. I called Apple and asked them and they said if I purchased through them they could refund it all. I then called Apple back and was told that the Applecare warranty is transferrable to a new computer. Is this correct?

    Thanks all.

    If Apple told you it was transferable why are you questioning it?

    Only because the guy sounded so unsure lol. But I called back and I feel confident now, thanks for the reply.

    You're doing a smart thing. The new 15" MBP's look really great! I was hoping that the screen resolution would at some point go to 1680x1050, and it is available now.

    I am pretty sure its transferable. I would return your macbook and head to the apple store.
