    What is the best tool kit for working on a laptop? I know iFixit is a standard but is there something as good but costs less money? Think of getting the iFixit Pro Tech toolkit for $70 unless someone has a better suggestion.

    I don't think I would be using one a lot. Mainly just getting in a laptop to repaste or upgrade something. It definitely needs to be magnetic so I don't have to get on my hands and knees looking for a screw I dropped. :eek:

    You can get just the screwdrivers from ifixit, which includes a magnetized tip.

    Mako Driver Kit - 64 Precision Bits - iFixit

    Grab a magnetic parts tray from Amazon to put the screws while you're working on the internals, and to pry open the bottom panel you could probably get a guitar pick for free from a local music shop.
