Anyone who's had the pleasure of taking apart an early-2008 MacBook Pro, or an iBook can appreciate the need for a good set of tools. If you frequently take apart Apple notebooks or iPods then a good set of tools is essential. I have a drawer full of Torx and Philips screwdrivers, spudgers that I dig through to find just the right tool for the job.

Finally someone has put together all of the major tools that you need for most Apple repairs and upgrades in one nice kit. The NewerTech 11 Piece Portable Toolkit (US$17.99) is perfect for servicing and upgrading most computers and consumer electronics devices (including iPods). It includes everything needed to service, add memory and upgrade desktop and laptop computers, as well as small consumer electronics devices like iPods.  The toolkit features a variety of straight blade and Philips head screwdrivers, Torx drivers, a scissor clamp, tweezers, and two nylon “spudgers” pry tools organized in a padded nylon carrying case for ready access.

The kit contains:

  • Straight Blade 1.8mm
  • Straight Blade 3.0mm
  • Phillips #00
  • Phillips #2
  • Torx T6
  • Torx T8
  • Torx T10
  • Scissor Clamp
  • Tweezers
  • (2) Nylon Pry Tools (aka "Spudgers")
  • Nylon Carrying Case

The NewerTech kit is essential and cheaper than buying everything separately. If you need disassembly instructions check out the iFixIt Guides.
