    I have a 2010 15 macbook pro and I have lost some of the bottom and the internal screws. I was wondering if anybody knows what type it is if they can be found easily in a hardware shop so I can replace them. The mac repair company in my country charges $25 per screw (ridiculous price), so I am crossing my fingers that these are standard screws.

    It is rare that you will find a screw used in a laptop in a hardware store. Try another local computer shop and see if they have any left over laptop screws that may fit. $25/ea seems pretty extreme though.

    Good luck.
