    Hello.

    Does anyone know a solid reputable brand of drivers and bits or at least which is the best material I should be looking for when buying that kind of tool?

    I need to open up my macbook but past experience lead me to twist bits and strip screws. This machine is brand new so I wanted to make it as clean as possible.

    Thanks!

    I like the Wiha brand drivers like this because they have hardened tips that will not strip your screw heads.

    Thanks! Wiha does seem to have the best recommendation so far. Everybody has only good things to say about them.

    Wiha is my go to. It's also what I had at the Apple Store when I was working there.
