    i bought the ipad 1 late last august which i'm hoping to sell once my ipad 2 turns up.

    concerning warranty is it transferable to the potential buyer ?

    My only problem is that i don't have the reciept i'm usually very carful but somehow i've lost it.

    I did read somwhere that apple only has to check the ipad instore to find out the available warranty left on the ipad.

    Apple should have emailed the receipt to you. Failing that, if you put your serial into https://selfsolve.apple.com/GetWarranty.do you'll find out.

    Warranties are automatically transferred to the new owner, I think.

    Apple will be able to tell when it was purchased if you bring it in for any warranty issues. As far as to show the new buyer, a reservation receipt should at least show the dates.. Perhaps you could also find a CC receipt to show the purchase price?

    You don't need the receipt for the warranty; especially if it was purchased from Apple. As long as the warranty checker posted above shows it's valid, Apple couldn't care less who brings it in for service. I did an iPod a few months ago and they didn't ask for ID or anything.

    If you bought from Apple they have the receipt. If you don't have the warranty they typically just use the production date as the purchase date for warranty purposes. However, if you did not purchase from Apple they can ask for proof of purchase, but often they don't. Also if you purchase AppleCare then its a moot point.
