(KCEN) -- There's a Dell deal in the works that could be one of the largest buyouts in history.
That's if it succeeds.
Company Founder Michael Dell and Investment Firm Silver Lake Partners hope to buy back the computer maker.
It's a deal worth more than 24 billion dollars.
Shareholders still have to approve though.
Dell struggled in 2012, losing a third of its market value and failing to keep up with rivals Apple and Samsung.
