The best-performing stock of the 1990s is now officially going private. What does the future hold for Dell?

The following video is from Friday's Investor Beat, in which host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analyst Charly Travers dissect the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.

The greatest-performing stock of the 1990s, Dell (DELL.DL) this week saw its shareholders approve a bid by founder Michael Dell and Silver Lake Management to take the company private. In this segment, Charly discusses why the competitive landscape has become so difficult for hardware manufacturers in the tech sector, and what the future for Dell and its competitors may look like.
