The University of Massachusetts is pleased to bring to the University’s primary constituents-the campuses and their students, faculty, and staff-the second generation of the U$ave purchasing program for personal computers.This purchasing program, originally conceived and launched in 2002, takes advantage of the volume purchasing power of all five University campuses and returns substantial discounts to the purchaser. U$ave, while designed primarily to serve the computer purchasing needs of the campuses, also extends its benefits to personal purchases by University students, faculty, and staff.

We encourage you to do your computer shopping through this web site and take full advantage of the substantial savings you will find here.  The prices are the best available for the models that have the UMass-specified features.If you have any questions about the recommended or other personal computer models, please contact the appropriate vendor identified on the right, or contact your campus representatives.
