While there is a fairly long list of tools listed here, I was able to complete the entire guide using only a 3/64" flathead mini screwdriver (the kind you get for $0.99). I replaced the stock 500GB 5400RPM drive with the updated 7200RPM slim drive of the same line with no issues. The BIOS picked it up immediately, and I need only reinstall an OS.

Missing step: remove the two screws under the battery, otherwise the keyboard won’t come off
