Does Apple switch MBPro screws to Pentalobular when repaired?

    I am getting my Macbook Pro 13" (Late 2010) repaired by Apple. I installed a OWC Data doubled and SSD in the optibay slot and will restore the DVD drive before bringing it to Apple. The only problem is that I heard Apple switches the Phillips head-type screws on your macbook with the tamper resistant Pentalobular design. Is this true, and is it still happening? Thanks. I need to put back the SSD drive once the laptop is repaired.

    Not all the time. You could ask for them not to use the new screws, or buy a pentalobular screwdriver.

    I doubt it, it would be a dick move. But then again this IS Apple we're talking about. RAM and HD are user replaceable parts so they'd be blocking that.
