I have recently stared taking lots of serious interest in computers, and i was wondering if any one had any recommendation on a physical magazine i could subscribe to. i say "physical", because i am finding that a lot of computer magazines are becoming digital. And don't get me wrong, im sure these are just as good, legitimate, and maybe more convenient for some. However, i prefer to read in my spare time, when i am not near any online resource, such as school, or a waiting room of some sort. Any Ideas?

You're gonna be happy. It's probably the best magazine for an average computer user.

I subscribe to three magazines.

PC World

TechNet

CPU

Each covers a different aspect of computers and computing.

I currently subscribe to PC World and maximum pc like both of them.

usually on the free issues deal you have the chance to write cancel on the bill when it arrives and just keep the free trial issue or issues, but I would read the small print.

Well, I just subscribed to the MaximumPC, PC World, SmartComputing, and CPU. I have soooo much to learn. I doubt if I'll keep all 4 subscriptions. I'll probably choose 2 that I like the best.

you have to bear in mind that the mags reviews can be tainted...they are not going to badmouth a product that pays for advertising in their mag ...use sites like the tech report that does a lot of benchmarking for all hardware..
same for anandtech....Tom's Hardware...[H]ard|OCP...there are others but those are all good ones...
