Your Best Value

The Madison CyberZone offers the best value in Apple and Dell computer systems for JMU students, faculty and staff. We offer enterprise level systems that are reliable and full-featured enough to last four years.  Every system we sell can be serviced on campus. With our academic discount, model for model, spec for spec, warranty for warranty, our prices are up to 20% less than the manufacturer's 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 offer lower priced computers, but in most cases, they can't match the reliability or warranty coverage of our systems. Most of our competitors' computers cannot be repaired on campus and must be returned to the manufacturer or retailer for warranty service.

Five Reasons to Buy Your Computer from Us

1. We Know JMU

Our selection is based on products that are integral to your success at JMU.

2. Excellent Customer Service

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is trained to answer your questions and address your product needs.

3. Great Software and Hardware Discounts

We offer educational discounts on many items, including up to 80% off list for software*.

4. On-Campus Service and Support for Peace of Mind

All of our systems include 3 or 4 years of the manufacturer’s hardware warranty and can be serviced right on campus to keep you up and running.

5. We Have Everything You Need in One Place

Our famous All Together One Accessory Kit gives you the convenience of one stop shopping for all of your tech needs to hit the campus running.

Steps for Buying a Computer
