Taking a Prime apart - Tony Duell - 11-13-2013

I've posted a few photographs of the inside of an HP Prime here :

Why do you think the main chip has red epoxy? Thermal stress?

Thanks to your images I can see the reason why the ON button has a slight different design (due the screw hole). I feel this button already slightly different than the other buttons, I hope it don't break like as in a 49g+

Thanks Tony for the insight. It looks very nicely engineered.
