Black Friday is always a great time to buy a new computer or upgrade some existing hardware on your computer, and Black Friday 2017 is no exclusion. Dell will be having its own special Black Friday 2017 sale, and fortunately, the ad scan has been leaked for our viewing pleasure. As always, you can expect a lot of computers and some electronic accessories to be on sale. Even some hidden gems are contained within, so take a close peak at every inch of the ad.
Dell was founded in 1984 by Michael Dell at the age of 1984. Michael Dell was 30 years well ahead of his time, as he founded PCs Limited at the age of 19. The company sold IBM-PC compatible computers, and he managed this entire business all from within his dormitory room. In the short year that followed, Dell would be manufacturing his own computer. These computers sold for around $800 at the time (roughly $1,100 in 2017) and soon enough, Dell was selling a thousand computers a month. As the growth came, Dell seeked out more funding for his business, and borrowed $500,000 from his family – this was repaid back before the end of 1986. They were soon operating out of a full-fledged, 82,000 square-foot factory based in northern Texas.
Dell would grow his staff and hire on many prominent figures and advisors, including Lee Walker, George Kozmetsky, and Bobby Ray Inman. In 1988, the company PCs Limited changed its name to Dell COmputer Corporation, and went public with 3.5 million shares starting at $8.50 each. Since then, the rest became history, and Dell has expanded its reach into small businesses and governments alike. In 2000, the Dell website alone was grossing $40 million per sales each day.
Now, Dell is known for its wide variety of computer hardware, including the famous Alienware gaming hardware line. Also included are the Inspiron series of computers, which are budget models, the XPS series, which is the higher-end series of computers, and the Venue series of tablets for both Android and Windows alike. Of course, they are also famous (perhaps infamous?) for their wide accessories and peripherals line, which includes USB drives, printers, LCD televisions, monitors, projectors, and UltraSharps.
The Dell Small Business catalog has been integrated with this ad scan, but is available for separate viewing. Do note that in order to place any order from the Dell Small Business catalog, you will need to have a Small Business account, which can be a whole process on its own. Caution is advised, and this is included just for consolidation sake.
