After a long and contentious buyout ordeal that started in January, Michael Dell and investment group Silver Lake Partners are now the official owners of computer maker Dell Inc. Dell shareholders have approved  the $24.6 billion bid in an official vote this morning.

Below is an interactive timeline of the dramatic fight over Dell that ultimately ended up with the PC maker back in the hands of the man who created it. Scroll over and click the arrows to get started.
