Michael Dell
When I was a student at the University of Texas at Austin in 1984, Michael Dell founded the company as PC Limited with a capital of 1,000. Operating from the bedroom out of the Dell campus in Debie Center, small company sold computers compatible with IBM-PC built components available in stock.
Michael Dell started trading in the belief that by selling personal computers directly to customers, PC Limited could better understand customer needs and provide the most effective ways to meet those needs. Michael Dell left the University to devote full time in his fledgling business, after obtaining an extension of capital of 300,000 from his family.
In 1985 the company produced the first computer with its own design “the” Turbo PC ” ‘which contained an Intel 8088 processor with a speed of 8 MHz PC Limited advertise computer equipment in computer magazines of national circulation for direct sales to customers and custom assembly in each computer according to a list of options. This offered buyers prices lower than those offered its products through retailers, adding the advantage of personalization. Although not the first company to use this business model, PC Limited became the first to achieve success with this. The company earned 73 million in its first year.

The company changed its name to “Dell Computer Corporation in 1988. In 1989, Dell Computer’s first program designed in-service site in order to compensate for the lack of local retailers prepared to act as service centers. Also in 1987, the company established its first operations in the UK, 11 other international operations followed four years later. In June 1988, market capitalization Dell grew between 30 and 80 million dollars since its initial public offering of 3.5 million shares to 8.5.
In 1990, Dell tried to sell their products through computer stores and superstores, but had little success and re-focus on its more successful direct sales model. In 1992, Fortune magazine included Dell Computer Corporation in a list of the 500 largest companies in the world. In 1996, Dell began selling computers through its website.
In 1999, Dell overtook Compaq to become the largest seller of personal computers in the U.S. with earnings of 25 million reported in January 2000.

In 2005, the proportion of sales coming from international markets increased, as revealed by the press department of the company for the first two quarters of its fiscal year 2005. In February 2005 Dell appeared in first place of the “Most Admired Companies” published by Fortune Magazine. In November 2005, BusinessWeek magazine published an article titled “It’s Bad to Worse at Dell” (bad to worst in Dell) about the shortfall in projected income and sales, with a third half worse than expected in with respect to financial performance, a bad omen for a company that had routinely underestimated its earnings.
