Once upon a time, the idea of having a magic box that would compute information was something that would only happen when everyone's daily commute was done in the air. While flying cars may not have come just quite yet, that magic box has found its way into the hearts and homes of people all over the world, and it's not going anywhere any time soon. In 1984, when Dell was born, computers really were a figment of many peoples' imaginations. For 19-year old creator Michael Dell, however, this dream was meant to be a reality. From the walls of a dorm room, Michael took off from college to pursue his ever-growing computer business. Little did he know that 31 years later, those dorm walls would be a major foundation of that very business. Today's Dells come in all shapes and sizes. From desktop powerhouses to lightweight laptops and travel-worthy tablets, these little machines get wound up for work or play any day.
