Microsoft Software Provided by IT 
New computers purchased from the VMI Dell premiere page are preloaded with VMI licensed Microsoft Operating System and Office Software. You must read and agree to the Microsoft Campus Agreement before placing an order with Dell.

What computer does VMI recommend? 
VMI recommends a DELL laptop with 4 year Onsite warranty. With this onsite coverage, the laptops can be worked on here at VMI by a Dell technician instead of the laptop being sent to a repair facility.  Cadet owned computers must be a laptop, or notebook computer. No desktop computers will be permitted in barracks. All computer systems operating on the VMI LAN must contain a Network Interface Card (NIC).
