RE: HP Prime Hardware (internal and external)

I now have one and have looked inside.

Well, it is not just a few wires added as jumpers; it is a whole new board. Other than the CPU, most of the big chips have been relocated as well as many of the smaller ones. The board itself is covered with captan (the sticky orange plastic film found around electronics) and the inside of the back cover now has a thin copper lining with the USB plug grounded to this with conductive foam when the back is in place. The PC board for the keypad has also been redesigned with test-points remove or relocated.

In other words, it looks like a piece of electronic gear that is meant to support high-speed processing and communications and not leak RF.

Which begs the question: why was the original Prime's communication capability removed with 6030 firmware? Hmmmm . . .?
