Hello ladies & gentlemen. I am going to have to do some work on my laptop & some external HD's, and I need a toolkit. So my question is what is a decent..or good toolkit I can purchase for about $15, not more. Amazon is preferrable, but newegg is also good.


Thank you so much

I can't recommend a specific brand as there are so manu and quality is hard to verify.   Laptops, notebooks use a screw type called Torx, like this, > http://www.amazon.com/Husky-74502-Torx-Screwdriver-Set/dp/B001T5MNVY 

For a desktop, magnetic, like this, > http://www.amazon.co...1TFWFKJ5FHPVYX4

for Apple computer, like this, > http://www.amazon.co...00LFVDPU0?psc=1

You could possible find all at a local tool shop, or Walmart.


Good luck.

Something I've noticed LinusTechTips using a lot is the iFixit Tool Kit. Something you could look into..



Although it's way out of the price range of $15.
