So anyone have a suggestion as to the best place to pick up a tri-wing screwdriver? I just upgraded the HDD and RAM in my new MBP and wanted to take my battery out but came across the tri-wing screws. This is the fist mac that I've owned that's had them, so any ideas as to the source of a good quality/good price on one?

Thanks!

Chris

Try ifixit.com They carry a number of specialty tools for working on Macs

Don't know if this is the specific one you need, but worth a look

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

Funny you'd mention them, Razor. I've got several items in my shopping cart that have been sitting there for several days. That's one of them. I've used their tutorials on several occasions, but never purchased anything from them. I was kind of waiting to see if anyone would recommend them.

Have you ever purchased anything from them?

I have. iPod parts and tools. No problems, quick shipping.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Not yet . . . mainly just entertained myself browsing thru their site.
