    Sorta found this forum out of sheer luck but it looks like a good place to kill a couple of years off my life:D

    Im looking for a replacement screw for the left side of a MBP A1150, ifixit.com sells a screw kit for around 50bucks but all I need is 1 screw and wondering if their is a cheaper alternative:confused:

    You're not going to be able to find single screws for sale. on eBay, screw kits are running for around $30. If you can find the size of the screw from some sort of data sheet you can buy similar screws probably in packs of 100 for fairly cheap (~$1-2) if you don't mind minor aesthetic incompatibility.

    LOL. when i applied a new thermal paste on my old mba rev A. i lost one screw, i remembered that i had a broken canon ixus digital camera, and i took the screw out of it and put it on the macbook air, not as shiny as the other screws but it did a good job, even made my right case macbook air not creaky anymore. LOL.
