Mijn probleem

SSD Upgrade using Dual Drive. Why? Found a new 128GB OCZ Agility 4 for EUR 45,- !

Mijn oplossing

I opted for the Dual Drive Set (bundle), because of the USB/SATA Cable (very useful) and the set of tools, which includes a Philips screwdriver bit that died against one apple screws (the

One 8.6 mm Phillips screw which holds the bracket with the airport/bluetooth cables, at step 8) which seems to be tightened very much at Foxconn, to my personal bad luck, and, which is even worse, to be of harder steel than the ifixit included bit. It ended up in a a totally ruined screw, so i decided to try bend the bracket (bad idea! don't do it!) which immediately broke apart next to the screw! to my fortune it has a second screw to hold it. I hope, it won't affect the functionality somehow, since another reason for the bracket besides of holding the airport/bluetooth cables in place is to fixate the optical drive in place.

Mijn advies

The drawback of the included tools may be because its a set of bit tips combined with a driver, which has a momentum at the turn - this lacks precision.
