FORTUNE announced today its annual list of the 40 Richest Americans under the age of 40. Topping the list is Michael Dell, 39, chairman and founder of Dell Computer. With wealth of $17.95 billion, Dell has held the No. 1 spot since the list was started in 1999. Larry Page and Sergey Brin of Google, both 31, hold the No. 4 and No. 5 spots with total wealth of $4.19 billion and $4.17 billion, more than four times their wealth last year when they first debuted on FORTUNE’s “40 Under 40.” Debuting this year? Celebrities such as Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Roberts, and the Olsen twins.
