Dell Computer Corporation announced deals with AT&T Corporation, Excite Inc., and SBC Communications on Wednesday to offer Internet services for its home and small office personal computers. The deals, which solidify Dell's ConnectDirect service, place access to AT&T WorldNet and Excite Internet dial-up services on the desktops of its Dimension line. Users with high-speed access can use SBC's DSL service to connect to the Internet: That service will be offered in Texas and California initially.

Other PC vendors, such as Compaq and Gateway, offer similar Internet access bundles
