    The three that i have bought (at the airport etc.) are:

    - MacWorld
    - MacLife
    - MacAddict

    I really want to get a subscription to one of these...

    but is there any other magazines?

    and if not, which of these three should i subscribe to?

    I can't name any other ones than those, but I prefer MacWorld of the three. It has a nice balance of topics in it, and I can usually use most of the information in there.

    i think MacAddict is now Mac | Life no?

    and i gave up on the mags since all the info was somewhat outdated by the time i got 'em, compared to MacRumors.

    MacAddict is now MacLife.
    For some reason, I prefer the UK versions of Macworld to the US, even if it's more expensive for me here in Canada.
    I don't subscribe, but pick them up if I see something really interesting.
    And I used to read Dr. Dobb's for programming ideas.

    I subscribe to MacAddict/Life, but I'm not totally sold on the new format. It just seems too disjointed for me. MacUser is solid, if unspectacular (just my opinion).

    Duff-Man says...all the mags are suffering a bit now as all the info is available online so much faster. MacWorld is probably still the most rounded of the ones out there and I still get it monthly (freebie)...I doubt I would actually pay retail price for it....oh yeah!

    I've gotten all of those magazines before and I like MacWorld the best. I got a free subscription from the purchase of my MacBook Pro.

    iCreate is great. I think it is the best one out there with great tutorials. The problem I have with Mac magazines is that nothing is ever new in them. I get all the news off the internet and some of the reviews are very much an opinion.

    I find them all boring, personally. Macrumors here fulfils all my needs for mac-related information. And, it's free.
