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.

Is that actually much good? I ask because I was sick of all the Windows based mags doing articles on how to fix this or that and how to never have to worry about data loss etc...when basically half the articles were actually useless. I'm recently getting back into Linux and pointers would be helpful.

Yeah, plenty of reviews of software, side by side comparisons etc, and regular tutorials section with usually 6 tutorials ranging from gimp work to python and php programming. I've got just over a years worth of issues in my office as a very handy library should I ever need them (and I do use them quite a lot).

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.

- Rep Power
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.
