White Macbook 2010 - missing screw

Hi,

I fitted some more RAM into my girlfriends Macbook around a year ago, and ever since one of the screws in the corner kept coming lose - and I fear it's now fallen prey to the vacuum cleaner!

Does anyone please know where I can get a replacement screw from for a reasonable price? I've found these on Ebay, but 15 seems a lot when I only need the one

Thanks

Ah! Thanks both It's around a two hour round trip for me, but will try to pop in next time I'm near one (going to London on Sunday in fact!)

...and use a small amount of low strength Loctite on the screw to keep it locked.
