    Hi,

    I was just wondering what is the best screw driver set for removing the screws from the late 2009 macbook pro unibody?

    Thanks,

    pretty much any $2 jewelry sized screwdriver will work. The screws aren't very tight. Phillips head is preferable.

    Home Depot and Lowes sell a little $5 set with PH 1 downto 000 and four flat bits. They have a similar one with Torx bits T15 and T10..T5 too.

    I went to Canadian Tire and just picked the cheapest option that had the T6 torx. Ended up finding a multi screw driver with both the Torx and the #00 Phillips for $10. Just head to a store and look for the lowest priced option. In the end, they're all pretty much the same.

    Wiha is great, as are the ifixit tool sets.

    You need a 00 phillips and a T6 torx at a minimum.

    I own one of those too, it was a hell of a lot cheaper then the wiha and while it isnt as good it is way more then good enough.
