    Why is there this black sheet on X200M notebook motherboard?

    Hi,
    On my Asus X200M notebook, there's this black colored sheet covering the motherboard.
    I am curious what is the purpose of placing such a sheet on top of motherboard?
    Is is some sort of insulator. It's black and is not transparent.
    See a photo.
    Thanks & regards.

    Is is some sort of insulator.

    Yep!

    An insulator to prevent electrical shorts/arcing/fire retardant when dropped, stomped on, or ran over by anything. Maybe, causes for delayed traveling or trips to other places.
