What is the problem with pentalobes?
First of all, if this isn't an appropriate question, because it's not specifically a problem I'm having, feel free to delete this. It applies to a MacBook Air that I want to open up.
I'm a little confused about why pentalobe screws are so strongly disliked by iFixit. Aside from them being proprietary and therefore more expensive and harder to acquire, what else is wrong with them? I think I've heard things said about them stripping easier, but I haven't found much detailed information about that. Is that something that I should worry about with pentalobes? With screws such as phillips and twi-wings, I have repeatedly removed them and put them back onto computers several times. Should I avoid screwing and unscrewing pentalobe screws like this multiple times in devices?
Is this a good question?
