    I am going to upgrade my soon to arrive new 15" Macbook Pro HD to an Intel SSD and need to buy some tools to make the swap. What screwdriver sizes/types are necessary for this process?

    I was considering getting this toolkit from Belkin - http://amzn.to/dcagKT - will that do it?

    Also, while I think it should be pretty easy, a little extra help doesn't hurt. Have you seen any good video tutorials to do this upgrade for the new MBP (or is the whole process the same as the last generation)?

    Thanks for any help you can give me!

    The process is the same as the previous MBPs (the ones that were just refreshed). Simple process, can do it without a guide, probably.

    Just be careful that you don't strop the screws, they're very tiny and hard to keep the screwdriver in.

    Look in your user manual that came with it. It explains it clearly.
