    Sonofa. Somehow I lost one of the screws on the bottom of the new unibody 17'' MBP. Not the long ones, just one of the really short ones.

    Are they the same size as the ones in the 15'' screw replacement kits I've seen floating around on ebay? Again, the short ones, not the long ones.

    Or any sites that sell them? So far I've only seen replacement kits for the non unibody models.

    Have you tried asking an AppleCare certified repair center? Those places tend to sell you parts.
    You can also ask real nicely at an Apple store.

    Haha, I did the same thing while upgrading my hard drive. I lost one of the screws for about an hour and finally found it on the floor! If I couldn't find it I was going to check eBay. Good luck!
