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

3. Place your order: Call or stop by the Madison CyberZone, and we’ll take it from there.  (We don’t offer online ordering because we want to talk to you to make sure you’re getting just what you need.)

You Need Information…

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.


You Need It to Be Easy…

Configuring and purchasing a new computer can be a difficult challenge. There are many different options, and only certain brands and configurations are supported on campus. The Madison CyberZone makes it easy for you.

In partnership with JMU Information Technology and academic departments, we configure all of our computer systems to meet your student’s course requirements and receive the best on-campus service. Just pick one from the list of recommended systems for a specific major or ask for help if you’d like to customize a system to your student’s individual needs.

There are so many accessories and peripherals needed to get the most out of your computer that it is easy to forget something. To ensure your student has everything needed for his or her computer at JMU, we offer the All Together One Kit. Each kit contains the accessories, cables, peripherals and software that students need to get their computer connected and to get started on their class work for a price much less than you would find at a retail store.
