If you have access to Apple's GSX service you can setup an application that uses their API to query warranty data. That can then be stored in a text file on the machine and read into KACE via a custom inventory rule. That's how I approached this in my environment.

For other manufacturers you will have to see if they provide a programatic way to query warranty data. Microsoft's is behind a captcha, so that's a no go for Surface data.  

<pet peeve>Mac is short for Macintosh, it isn't an acronym so there's no need to place it in all caps.</pet peeve>
