    Local hardware store?

    Is Fry's electronics local to you? Even a glasses repair kit one usually does the trick

    You just need a size 00 phillips head screwdriver: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1651 click the drop-down for "Installing Memory" under "Other MacBook computers"

    Yes, Target will have them. You can probably pick up an entire precision set of drivers there for about $7.

    lowes and home depot have small screw driver sets. you need to use the exact size or else you can strip the screws. i picked one up for about 6 bucks that has 4 different sizes of phillips and flat.

    This is where I got mine, It was a Kobalt precision screwdriver set. Just go to a Lowes or Home Depot and you will be able to find one easy.
