    Does Apple have that second lifetime warranty thing? Meaning if the Macbook Pro is sold to a second owner, will they have warranty on their product? Or are they screwed? I'm wondering because I'm planning on trading my PC with a friend for a new Penryn Macbook Pro. And I wanna make sure that I'll have my warranty in case anything goes wrong. Any help?

    Yes, the warranty transfers to the new owner. Either of you can contact Apple to have the ownership info updated.

    WildCowboy is correct (as usual!), but I'm not sure what you mean by "second lifetime". If you have a 1 year warranty and sell it after 6 months, the buyer will have 6 months left on the warranty. The clock doesn't start again when you sell it.

    So you're cheating your friend out of a MacBook Pro with a PC? :p
