    I am going to re-do the thermal paste on my MacBook Pro and know that this screw is stripped, so wanted to get 1 or 2 before pulling the Mac apart. Does anyone know where i could get this screw? Some sites sell the full kits with like 50 internal screws, but i just need this one. anyone know a place or have suggestions?

    Here is a pic of the one i need:

    Contact Apple and see if they'll send you some screws.

    Check to see if there's a computer repair shop near you, ideally a mom-and-pop type operation (Apple authorized or not) and see if they have any extras lying around. Bring one in so they know exactly what you need and offer them a few bucks. I've done this at my local unauthorized repair shop a few times and they always refuse my money.
