That's why I love torx and hex heads. They never strip.

I have a dremel and it's been the greatest investment, However, The more I look at that picture, That screw looks deep in a hollow hole. I have yet to find a dremel grinding disc that size.

I would just get a small chizel and lightly tap it counterclockwise. If this is a laptop, I highly doubt you would need much more than that.
