The Case B examines the shifting dynamics as Intel and Microsoft to maintain its dominance over the box makers. By 2001, Compaq was toppled as the world’s largest PC maker. Intel remained the world’s largest producer and processor Microsoft was a software giant. But a company founded in 1984 by a University of Texas student made its place as a leader in the “Wintel” value chain. The company was Dell. See the one case (UV1011) and C case (UV1013).
