Apple has announced that a “very small number” of 1TB Seagate hard drives used in 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMac systems may fail under certain conditions. The problem only applies to systems that were sold between May 2011 and July 2011. My own 27-inch iMac purchased in June 2011 is affected by this recall.
