    What screwdriver have people used to access the memory bay on the new i7 iMacs.

    The handbook says a Phillips #2, however in the UK a "No 2" looks to be too large. I've tried every one in the house and nothing seems to work, the ones that seem to fit don't bite. Even bought a "No 2" from the DIY shop and it doesn't work!!

    Getting peeved how a 10sec job is now in its second day.

    Please help, I want 8Gb.

    I kid you not, I used a Swiss Army knife on my keychain like the one below because I didn't feel like going to get my tool box from out of my car. It worked like a charm. Took 15 seconds to get the screws out.

    Scruffy old wooden handled jobby did it

    Borrowed a collection from a neighbour and found one that worked. Maybe a number 0 or even smaller
