    The 4 out of 10 was for ease of repair?

    Correct the 4 out of 10 was only for repairability. I thought it was a cool video. Had to share it and im glad you liked it.

    I wouldn't mind seeing a tear down of MJ from the iFixIt video...I think that'll be a much more entertaining watch!

    The Cypress chip is only the touch panel controller, not the display. I don't know if we know who manufactures the actual LCD yet.

    I opened it and raised the power button on mine, its fairly easy to open and close up.

    My power button works better works better after putting it back together. Almost like the rubber wasn't lined up just right. I didn't try to raise because I like the flush button.

    How did you raise the power button and is the back cover plastic or metal?
    Is there anything you saw on the inside of the cover that could make you think of an idea what could cause the bulge on some models and how to fix it?
