What is this thing?
What is this little metal pad here? There's a IC on it on iFixit's teardown but not on mine. 2015-1-4. I get E101, E102.
There's nothing that's supposed to be there. If you look all over the motherboard there are pads similar to that. I'm not sure why but it seems there are different board configurations that they use. Different boards will have different empty pads and I'm not sure what the difference is.
Hope this helps.
That appears to be some kind of power regulator, deemed unnecessary and was cut from later productions.
It shouldn't cause console error.
