    Yes, Apple was nailed with this on the iMac G5.

    These caps went into a lot of electronics during the period the factory was cranking out some bad caps.

    It is/was widespread problem.

    At least it was a reputable japanese manufacturer, so we can't really fault Apple for buying dodgey parts.
