CDW Corporation, headquartered in Vernon Hills, Illinois, is a provider of technology products and services for business, government and education.

The company has a secondary division known as CDW-G, devoted solely to United States governmental purchasers, such as from schools, universities, cities, and the state and federal government.

CDW was originally incorporated as "MPK Computing" by its founding member Michael Krasny, who currently ranks on Fortune magazine's list of the wealthiest Americans. It later became Computer Discount Warehouse and then simply CDW.

In early 2006, CDW opened a 513,000-square-foot (47,700 m2) distribution center in North Las Vegas, Nevada. The Vernon Hills, Illinois distribution center is roughly 450,000 square feet (42,000 m2).

In October 2006 CDW acquired Berbee, a top tier reseller of IBM, Cisco, and Microsoft products and services. It was CDW's second major acquisition after purchasing Micro Warehouse in September 2003 and opening two remote offices in New Jersey (Voorhees and Eatontown) which employ over 500 people.
