    AppleCare is attached to the serial, not the user. Officially the terms state that you need to fax AppleCare the new owner's information, few do and it doesn't seem to matter one bit.

    I have AppleCare on a couple of machines, and it is bound both to my Apple ID and to the specific machine via its serial number. I will be selling one of those machines before its Applecare coverage expires, and I expect I will need to notify Apple of the transfer as detailed in a previous post.

    You're all right. I've sent Apple an email in the past to transfer the warranty. I also purchased a used macbook with applecare and had the Apple Store change it over to me when I took it in for service. Same visit, on the spot.
