On the laptop market, which Dell was committed to re-enter due to its growing customer base, there were a number of technological problems.

Computers are programed to help and entertain us, but now they are taken for granted and manipulated by many.
At that time, computers were much larger in size and also in price, people thought of the computer as a toy, not a work necessity or communications tool. The American people already had their tools for work and school such as the typewriter and the use of the library, so why would they need a computer.
