Used to get PC Pro monthly, but like someone else said I stopped finding it valuable. Too many of the articles eventually get repeated and there are only so many times I can read through a review of 15 different graphics cards or motherboards before it gets too dull.
That said if I was going to buy a one off PC Mag without subscribing PC Pro would be at the top of my list.
They also do a weekly podcast you can download for nothing.
I opened this thread keen to see what I was "missing out on" it seems I am not at all. I dont buy any computer mags, instead it is "VW camper mag" I got as a subscription or sailing related if I fancy a read away from the computer.
I am not a true geek to want to know which motherboard is better than the next. I am interested in keeping up to date with things though, so might grab a copy of PC Pro to see what it is like.
Used to get Computer Weekly - now read it on line as well as other IT related news
Now sub'd to Linux Format.
I gave up on subscriptions now, I looked at some again this weekend, but all information in all magazines is available online, and some is a near enough word for word copy and paste job of articles online that are 3 months old!! (Specifically PC Pro)
I receive the TechNet Flash newsletter to my inbox and it's pretty interesting and up-to-date despite being a little narrow minded. The scripting guy section has always been useful too.
The school libary gets PC Pro - it gets sent to the IT Office for a quick browse then we send it down to the libary for the students.
Computer Weekly. They phone once a year for me to do a survey then I get that years subscription for free. The main reason I like it is for the Dilbert comic on the back page
I like PC Plus - the news and reviews are OK - but I really like the projects section - everything from building hardware to configuring HTPC set ups - really quite interesting as they say.
Welcome To PC Plus Magazine | PC Plus
Used to subscribe to CustomPC, until I realised that every issue was basically identical, albeit the hardware each month was slightly faster than the previous month.
