This year marked
the 30th anniversary of Dell Computer. By any account,
Michael Dell's life is an all-American success story.
19-year-old Michael Dell, a freshman at the University
of Texas founded a computer business with $1,000. He
called it PC's Limited. He had a game-changing idea to
make computers low-cost, sell them through catalogs and
(later) over the internet, and let people pick and
choose the hardware they want.
