Michael Dell Career
Dell began an informal business assembling and selling upgrade kits for personal computers in Room 2713 of the Dobie Center residential building as a freshman pre-med student at the University of Texas. He then applied for a vendor license in order to bid on contracts for the State of Texas, and he was successful because he did not have the overhead of a computer store. In January 1984, Dell staked his reputation on his belief that the potential cost savings of a manufacturer selling PCs directly outweighed the traditional indirect retail channel. Dell registered his company as “PC’s Limited” in January 1984. Operating out of a condominium, the company sold PC upgrades, kits, and add-on components worth $50,000 to $80,000. Dell incorporated the company in May.
