"(We) considered an array of strategic alternatives," says Dell's (DELL) board, responding to the dissident shareholders (14A).

    Whether or not this is the right price, the DELL board was meticulous procedurally, helping protect it from shareholder litigation.

    Gee, well I guess since Michael Dell offered a premium, he should be able to take the company private. I don't think Mr. Dell understands how the market works, its not just about paying a premium, its about paying a fair price.
