Manufacturer
Dell
American PC manufacturer Dell a California-based computer manufacturer, best known for making all-in-one desktop and laptop PCs, as well as PC peripherals such as keyboards, monitors and printers. Before it became an incorporated enterprise, founder Michael Dell got into the PC business selling computers built from stock components out of his University of Texas dorm room. The company expanded into one of the largest PC manufacturers in the industry by making PCs with third-party components to keep costs down. Today, Dell is still known for making “made-to-order” PCs for personal use, as well as commercial-grade computing equipment, such as servers.
