At age 19, Michael Dell founded PC’s Limited with $1,000 and a game-changing vision for how technology should be designed, manufactured and sold.
As a pre-med freshman at the University of Texas at Austin, Michael starts Dell, then doing business as PC’s Limited.
He left his dorm room at the end of his freshman year to devote all of his time to growing the business.
We design and build our first computer system, the Turbo PC, featuring an Intel® 8088 processor running at 8MHz, a 10MB hard drive and a 5.25″ floppy drive.
We establish customer experience as a Dell differentiator with risk-free returns and next-day, at-home product assistance, among the first in our industry.
We unveil the industry’s fastest performing PC — a 12MHz, 286-based system — at the Spring Comdex trade show.
We open our first international subsidiary in the United Kingdom.
Helping IT leaders like you… lead
Contending with routine IT demands leaves little time for innovation. It leaves little opportunity to take advantage of new trends fundamentally changing the way IT is consumed and delivered.And, information technology does not last forever. It has a lifecycle, a measurable beginning and end to its productivity and its value. You are tasked with optimizing this lifecycle, but also driving breakthroughs for your organization. To foster growth, you have to:
Anticipate new requirements
Assess current capabilities and future needs
Design and implement new solutions
Quickly drive new systems into production
Maintain system health
And at the end of the lifecycle, when systems are obsolete or new realities trigger change, you have to start the process all over again. So, how do you accomplish all of this?
At Dell, we believe the best way is through Dell EMC Services.
