Bulging capacitors haunt Dell | Tech News on ZDNet

I covered this two months ago here. And now it’s finally hitting the mainstream press as it continues to be a problem. It’s costing Dell money as they announce their revenue miss and take a $300 million hit for this problem. Wow!!

Interestingly enough, a change in weather seems to have slowed the failure rate as the ambient temperature stays lower as whole. But without intervention, next summer the problem will be back with a vengence. Everyone with one to two year warranties, take note.
