    Go to Lowe's or Home Depot and get yourself a nice set of mini screwdrivers for about $20 or less. I don't know where to get a spudger besides online (I got mine from Stanley).

    This seems reasonable: Metal Spudger Set and there are other selections to choose from at iFixit.com.

    If you want to go to a store for one, try Radio Shack -GDF

    I wouldn't bother buying a spudger, you don't need it to rip into a macbook. Harbor freight should have some small screw drivers.

    You can also find thin metal "spudgers" at a laboratory supply shop if you have anything like that around you.

    In my experience, a thin and broad flat head screw driver works just as well so long as you're gentle.

    I recommend avoiding any metal spudger/blade in favor of plastic. You still have to be careful but plastic will lessen any potential damage.

    Don't bother looking for a "spudger" in a store - nobody has any idea what you're talking about.

    If you don't buy it online, just use a credit card or buy some guitar picks.

    Extra heavy ones ;D

    I take it you went into a store and felt a bit of a fool when you asked for a spudger? ;)

    I too have no idea what a spudger is, but perhaps I should buy one/a set just in case...:)
