    I have an 08 Alum Macbook and I'm trying to upgrade the RAM... I went out and bought a #00 Phillips screwdriver, but it's too big for the screws... can someone please direct me to a link where they have purchased a tool for this job and have success with the tool? thanks

    Too big? The #00 is supposed to be the correct size. I used it on my 2007 MBP and it worked perfectly.

    I always thought #00 is supposed to be correct?

    Post a pic of the end of the screwdriver next to the screw head in your MB.
