    I am about to start throwing things. I'm trying to get into my wife's MBP to upgrade the memory. None of my tools can undo the screws......Am I just screwed? Do I need to take it into an apple store and pay them to do it?

    I read online that I need some special screwdrivers I've never heard of....will these do? http://amzn.to/yR25lf

    Any other options?

    All you need is a very small phillips screw driver.

    I used an a phillips screwdriver from a hobby store. Just look for specialty screwdrivers as those will have ones with the smaller tips that you will need.

    I can't attest to the quality. I linked the cheapest prime-eligible one on amazon.

    I've had this set for a few years with no complaints.

    Get a set from Home Depot.. They're like $6.99 [non-magnetized] and work great!!
