Searched on Google, searched on Apple, can't find a place to change the AppleCare registration on a used machine to a new owner. Anyone know? Should I just call Apple?

i am not sure about this...

applecare is tied to the hardware (serial number), therefore transfer to new owner is probably not necessary.

That's technically correct, but the Applecare agreement number is with whoever purchased the applecare for the computer in the first place.

As far as I know the only way to do it is to have the original owner call Apple direct and give consent to transfer the agreement number to a different name.

Called them, they said the previous owner has to send a letter requesting the transfer.
