    Hey,

    I ordered some extra RAM for my new MPB but forgot to get a screwdriver. Does anyone know anywhere in Manhattan that might sell one?! Need it fairly quickly so ordering online isn't an option.

    Thanks!

    I found my set at Lowes, they had quite a few different ones.

    Don't forget to get the Torx #6 I believe.

    Bring it to the Apple store, they may do it for free.

    Otherwise Lowes, Home Depot, Radioshack etc.

    Thanks for your ideas. I need it before the weekend is out (have a job where I want/need the extra ram added) so iFixit is out.

    Will have a look at RadioShack - they seem to have a few around!

    Thanks!

    Thanks ivnj!

    Went to Home Depot on 3rd and picked one up - cheap and does the job.

    Thanks!

    For future reference, Sears usually has these. Craftsman tools FTW!

    I found the Radio Shack sets to be kind of cheap quality wise.

    Sears has the 0,00 and 000 Phillips in the Craftsman series. Good with
    a guarantee. I'd suggest getting all 3 because screw sizes can vary
    between models. You DON"T want to strip these small screws!

    I wasn't expecting some reasonable results from this post about the Phillips product in NY but when I read about Lowes, Home Depot, Radioshack etc. I had to take it seriously.

    Thanks

    Husky makes good products and already comes with all sizes. No need to buy all sizes sererately.

    I have this same exact set (and the torx set too!) and I must say after 2 years these things have paid for themselves 10-fold. They're great quality too! Good buy.
