Normally in this case the board IS the cause of the bump. You will
notice that there is some material filed off the connector of the SER001.
If it wasn't, you'd have a veeeery huge bump. There are cases where this
isn't enough. I ALWAYS file about 1 mm off the top part of the case
where it'll touch the connector when I install these boards.
If you are cautious, you can do this without taking the Newton apart
any further than what is required for the SER001 installation.
