Michael Dell
0 yrs Michael Saul Dell was born February 23 in Houston, Texas. 1965
15 yrs He had his first encounter with a computer at the age of 15 when he broke down a brand new Apple II computer and rebuilt it, just to see if he could. 1980
  Dell attended Memorial High School in Houston, Texas, where he did not excel scholastically.  
  After graduating high school, he attended the University of Texas at Austin intending to become a physician.  
19 yrs While at the university, he started a computer company called PC's Limited in his room in Dobie Center with just $1,000 and an idea to provide affordable personal computers to college students. 1984
  The company became successful enough that, with the help of an additional loan from his grandparents, Dell dropped out of college at the age of 19 to run the business full-time.  
22 yrs PC's Limited changed its name to Dell Computer Corporation. 1987
  Over time, and despite a number of setbacks (including laptops that caught on fire in 1993, temporarily losing the consumer market to Gateway in the mid 1990's, and others), Dell survived.  
39 yrs Dell became the most profitable PC manufacturer in the world, with sales of US$ 49 billion and profits of US$ 3 billion in 2004. 2004
