    I have a i5 2.4 15" Mid-2010 MacBook Pro, and have recently ordered an 8GB RAM upgrade from Crucial.

    My question is; what type of screwdriver do I need to be able to take the bottom lid of my laptop off to install the new RAM?

    Thanks in advance! :)

    A tri-wing screwdriver should do the job :)

    edit: so sorry! Phillips #00 *

    Small philips-head. I believe the number is 00. You can easily get them at Computer stores or some hardware shops.

    If you're still unsure, bring the machine with you and show someone. There are plenty of screwdrivers for the job.

    I'll be doing the same thing soon, so good luck! It's not that hard...there are just a lot of screws.

    Phillips # 00


    Plain old #0 is too big. and #000 is too small.
