The warranty is registered by model and serial number and goes with the machine. If you sell it, it remains under warranty.

Warranty for certain, and I am fairly sure the accidental damage warranty also goes with the serial number.

@fcek - I looked up the warranty policy and it says "if you are not the owner, obtain authorization".  

If you sell the machine, give a bill of sale to the buyer. The buyer can contact Lenovo Support and change the name on the warranty. It applies to all types of warranty.

i will be the tech for the laptop for the life of the laptop - presuming we dont fall out.

It would be better if my name was on the laptop as I will receive any parts for it.

I was thinking of reg it in my name.

In the future if the customer say, emigrates and gets another tech, he will need to swap it to his name.

Just checking if that can be done for ext warranty.  Im buying it, and billing him so I can reg to him or me.  Pref me now and a poss to swap to him if need arises in the future.

If you are the tech and the warranty is in your name and you buy the machine and warranty initially, there is absolutely no problem at all. No need to transfer anything.
