    I am planning on installing the Seagate 7200.3 into my new MB, while I wait for the price of SSD to come down.

    What tools do I need to do this full installation myself? I know it is really easy, but I do not have a small screw driver.

    Suggestions?

    two ways you can do it.

    1. Buy small screw driver, torx (star shaped driver) set. Or,

    2. Buy small screw driver, remove hard drive, take original hd and replacment down to radio shack, talk clerk into letting you borrow a torx set there for five minutes, drive back to laptop, reinstall.

    Cheap bastid that I am, I ended up choosing 2.
