    I'm upgrading my HD on my Macbook, I read that you need a Torx T9 and I also read a place that suggested a Torx T8. I was going to pick one up at the hardware store (I don't own either) and I was wondering which size is better? Or perhaps it just doesn't matter?

    Thanks in advance!

    I should have been more specific, I have a late 2007 non-unibody Macbook. That one on the ifixit site is for unibody Macbook's.

    I bought a small precision screwdriver kit that came with about 50 bits of varying sizes, including T3 thru T12 or something. Cost 8.99 at Harbor Freight.

    Buy a torx set. Apple laptops use a variety of different torx fasteners. Wiha makes a very very nice set, made in Germany, not china like most others, and only costs ~$15.
