Question about registering xbox 360?

I purchased my slim a year and a half ago and forgot to register it, does Microsoft automatically register your Xbox once you set it up? Or did my register transfer over from my 360 elite cause I remember registering my elite when I first got it back in 08, and when I tried to register my slim on the website it said my device was already registered and was like ok good, but I never registered my Xbox slim or elite by phone though, I'm a little confused, what does registering my console do? One I know to get help from xbox live if I ever need help, anything else?

I might add ,  if you had an elite xbox before having a slim ,  that any purchased items from xbox live that are registered to the elite , will require you to be online to use on your slim.

Until your transfer your purchases to the new slim console.

Can be once every 6 months.

Recommend doing it solely based around those rare times when the power goes out
