Microsoft has already strained tie ups with other computer makers when the company came up with its own tablet last year. Now, Microsoft envisages a tactical deal with Dell Inc and is likely to lose some of its strong supportive partners over it. Dell is all set with a plan to buy out Silver Lake Management and as per rumours, Microsoft plays the main role of offering fund for it.
However, this deal would be a turning point in the hardware business development of the company. Ongoing collaboration with certain standard manufacturers in the market would be affected. Microsoft was in the midst of criticism from several sides, when the Surface tablet hit the market by October of 2012.
According to some unofficial reports, Microsoft is likely to offer a sum of more than $2 billion which may be confirmed by next week. Even though there are chances of Microsoft losing its present partners, Dell is sure to gain a strong position in the gadget world if this deal works out.
It has also been reported that other market giants have come up with their concerns on the deal and would like Microsoft to rethink on the same. Dell aspirants are hoping that Microsoft won't turn up their decision taking these trivial thoughts into consideration. Dell is the third largest PC maker in the world at present and can advance a lot in the technology arena with the Microsoft venture.
Although there is no official statement regarding the buyout, Microsoft's investment would certainly result in a significant share promoting even closer collaboration with Dell on future projects.
