Madison CyberZone




Your Best Value

The Madison CyberZone offers the best value in Apple and Dell computer systems for JMU students, faculty and staff. We offer computer systems that are reliable and full-featured enough to last four years at prices that are up to 20% less than the manufacturer's standard retail price. We also offer exceptional value on academically priced software.  We sell a selection of academically licensed Adobe and Microsoft titles at discounts up to 80% off the standard retail price.

We work closely with the university to ensure our computers have the right components and warranty to receive the highest level of support available on campus. We also work with the individual colleges to make sure we have computer systems that will meet or exceed their recommendations. Other stores may advertise lower priced computers, but in most cases, the price of the computer and the upgrades necessary to match one of our systems is significantly higher. Most of our competitors' computers cannot be repaired on campus and must be returned to the manufacturer or retailer for warranty service.



Easy as 1-2-3!

1. Pick your computer: Visit the JMU Academic Departmental Recommendation page at: Find your major and click the associated configuration.

2. Add your accessory kit: Add our All-Together-One Kit to make sure you have everything you'll need to get started.

3. Place your order: Call us at 540-568-3989, e-mail us at with how and when to best contact you, or visit us in the JMU Bookstore.

Please have your student’s JMU ID number and cell phone number when you place your order.

We Know What You Need.

The Madison CyberZone has all the information you need about hardware, software and other accessories necessary for your coursework at JMU. We can provide you with the academic departmental computer and software recommendations for most majors. We are an Apple Authorized Campus Store and a Dell Authorized Reseller. Our well-trained staff will work with you to find the right computer, software and accessories for your academic needs.

We Make It Easy.

Configuring and purchasing a new computer on your own can be a difficult challenge. There are many different options, but only certain brands and configurations are supported on campus. The Madison CyberZone makes it easy for you. We partner with JMU Information Technology and all academic departments to make sure our computer systems are configured to meet your course requirements not only for your Freshman year but for your Senior year too. We ensure you receive the best on-campus hardware service and the best service away from campus Apple and Dell offer. Just pick one from the list of recommended systems for a specific major. Please ask us if you’d like to customize a system to your individual needs. Be sure to come by anytime for a personalized consultation.

Get the Kit!

Whether you buy your computer from us or bring one from home, you still need the right accessories to get your schoolwork done. There are so many accessories and peripherals available that it is easy to forget something or buy an item that doesn’t do what you need. That’s why we offer the All Together One Kit to ensure you have everything you need for your computer at JMU and nothing you don’t.

Delivery or Pickup? It’s Your Choice.

Do you want your computer before school starts? Order by August 1st and we’ll ship your computer and kit home for free. If you have a busy summer and won’t be home, order by August 1st and we’ll have your computer waiting for you to pick up when you get to school. If you want to shop in person and leave with your computer in hand, we keep our most popular models in stock so you can pick one up today. Orders after August 1st will be available for pickup at the Bookstore when the computer arrives.
