    I've subscribed to Maclife - they have a deal going where you can get the digital and print edition which I like.

    Macworld has gotten better - but I didn't subscribe. The first few times I bought the magazine I got the feeling that Apple could do no wrong. I felt like anything they reviewed that was made by Apple had an unfair bias. Last time I looked I think they seemed a little more reasonable but since I already subscribed to Maclife - I didn't sign up here.

    If you can afford it I've always liked the british format magazines. I.E. mac format, linux format, and pc format - but subscriptions, because we are overseas and because of exchange rates, make it very expensive.

    I still love Macworld although they post lots of their content online as well. It is fun getting a new issue every month though.

    You haven't said what country you are in. In the UK MacFormat is prety good.
    Experience teaches you to recognise a mistake when you make it again.

    Also try going to Apple Product Registrations and register your mac if you haven't yet.
    I did it 1 month ago when I was exploring the Apple site and had the option of a 6 month free subscription to Macworld or MacLife, although I don't know if they still do it.

    The next sentence is true. The previous sentence is false.

    I'm a Macworld fan myself--MacLife seems a little too "glitzy" for my tastes--but yeah, there is still some intrinsic bias.

    For some reason the Brits get all the good magazines--Evo for cars (or shall I say autos) and Mac Format for Macs...

    That's because we won't read anything that is "crappy". If a magazine isn't informative we don't bother to buy them.

    I like Macworld too, and they have a very good deal on 2 year subscription.
