T6 Torx Screwdriver - is it needed for tear down?

MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Early 2011 Teardown

At the beginning of this arcticle, there is a list of required tools:

Phillips #00 Screwdriver


T6 Torx Screwdriver

Tri-wing Screwdriver

However, I don't see that T6 Torx Screwdriver was used at any point of tear down process.

It also says that

"There are no pentalobe screws since Apple still considers the RAM and hard drive to be user-replaceable."

So, do I need this tool, or not?

Is this a good question?

Good question +


Mayer answered your question, but I just wanted to provide some clarity. In the Teardown tool list we let you know every tool we needed to take the device apart. Since it is a Teardown, though, and not a repair guide, we don't explicitly state every single step.
