The day has come for Dell, which is now a private company. Starting today, Dell has just two shareholders: Michael Dell and Silver Lake Partners. Michael Dell has been attempting to shift his company from being on the share market to a private company for nearly the whole of 2013, with his day of reckoning now here.

After 25 years of being a publicly traded company, it'll be nice to see where Dell goes from here. From here on out, it won't have to worry about impressing shareholders, it can hopefully do some impressive, bold moves to stand out in the industry once again. Michael Dell has already said we can expect a bunch of new tablets from the company.

One of these is the Intel Bay Trail-powered, Windows 8.1-featured Dell Venue 8 Pro, which is priced quite competitively at $299 and is available now for pre-order.
