    I don't believe that is possible, but having Applecare on a machine is a very good selling point and should be a featured item when selling.

    EDIT: BTW- a quick phone call to AppleCare will answer the question with more certainty than we can too!;)

    Agreed. AppleCare is tied to the machine.

    Apple will only transfer AppleCare to another machine if they replace your machine during a repair.

    The AppleCare will transfer over to the new owner of your machine.

    You can also request a refund of the Applecare, which is a pro-rated refund less the cost of any Applecare you have used.

    Interesting, I didn't know that.

    I always sell my notebooks so the AppleCare is a selling point, but it's still good to know.
