    Looking for the best mag for Apple enthusiasts, to stay on top of new techs and products.

    What do you subscribe to? Any Suggestions?

    P.S.
    I know there's no better source than other Apple enthusiasts, the internet and its abundance of free material. But I travel a lot and still appreciate unplugged reading material.

    Thanks in advance.

    I subscribe to Macworld and MacUser. I feel Macworld is better and has more content but that is probably because it is a monthly magazine where as MacUser is a biweekly one. There is no point buying them for the news, it is always out of date if you check the internet regularly.

    I subscribe to Macworld. I read it cover to cover, and I think it is very informative and well-written. But, I have just switched, so I have a lot to learn. Idk if a seasoned Mac user would find it as informative as I.

    I'm interested in what everyone else reads.

    I get both Macworld and Mac|Life. I got the Mac|Life subscription on eBay for $9 for three years. :D

    I subscribe to an RSS feed of Mac Rumors. I guess that isn't a magazine but it's better for news.

    I used to thoroughly enjoy MacAddict, as they had far more content and far less ads than any of their competition, but it has been a few years since I read ANY mac magazine, it looks like they've changed their name to MacLife.

    I got macworld when I registered my mac a long time ago. It was only to be a six month subscription with the free deal, but for some reason, they've continued to send it to me for way more than those six months. Oh well, I can't complain. It's a good magazine and I would reccomend it.

    I love Macworld! It is very informative and provides some great tips...


    I don't know if I am allowed to post this, but Here is a free digital subscription to Macworld. It is totally legit and there is no need to lie about your fake business.

    Mac Life... uh MacDirectory

    Those are some alternatives. I don't subscribe to these but I do work at a newsstand.
