I've been reading PC Mag since it was first published. I'd like to now get a Mac oriented magazine now that I switched to an iMac. I am most interested in how-tos, software reviews, hardware goodies, and such. Any suggestions?

I get both MacLife and MacWorld and like them both. I kind of lean towards MacLife.

I personally like MacWorld (Macworld | Apple, Mac, iPod and iPhone News, Reviews, Help and Tips) but there are others which are equally suited to what you're looking for. Most of the magazines have a web site where you can review articles and read the majority of content on line. Scan through them on line and choose which ever one you think best meets your needs before subscribing.

Regards.

Completely agree. I also lean towards MacLife a bit more because it has tutorials, reviews, and ratings.

I have found an excellent Mac magazine called 'Mac Format.' It is British and very expensive on our newsstands, but subscriptions are less costly. the magazine is full of tutorials and useful topics. The ads all include prices in pounds, but it is over all a better magazine than those published here.

I am a recent switcher and subscribe to MacWorld. I like it so far...worth the money. They have new product reviews, software reviews, nice articles, etc. Since switching to Mac, I am more likely to read everything APPLE, so the ipod, etc. reviews in the mag don't bother me either.

Green iPod Nano / 4GB
iPhone 4S / 12-2011; 16gb
