    My 2010 macbook pro died last night.
    I went to apple store and they told me it costs $600 to replacce my 128gb ssd.

    I will try to replace ssd myself.

    Any recommendation for repair kit from amazon?
    Also, I need to order 2.5 inch ssd right?

    Any 2.5" SSD should work.

    As long as you have a #00 Philips, a #0 and a T5 or T6 Torx (I don't recall which) you should be fine, no "kit" needed.

    It's also VERY possible the SSD is fine but the cable connecting it to the system has failed.

    It is a T6. And good suggestion on the cable.

    You need a T00 Philips and Torx T6 screwdriver, no special kit needed.

    $600 to replace a SSD which is worth about $60 is a hell of a profit margin.
