These 21 tools cover all the basics you need to take apart any old computer, as well as the Mac specific tools you need for Apple's laptops, desktops, and even the iPad. And best of all, with a little Googling, they're pretty cheap, so save your hard earned bucks and trips to the Genius Bar by getting a hold of these tools and fixing your own Macs!
