Disadvantages: Quite a few adverts, Large Mac buyers guide in every issue
After buying my first Mac, I wanted to get the most out of it and this is where MacFormat came in and filled a gap. It's well thought out, well researched and well written articles have made it an essential purchase for me to get the most from my new machine.
The magazine manages to strike a good balance between new users and more experienced users though does seem a bit more towards the beginner/intermediate market. Monthly articles on software is good but not everyone uses and wants the said software.
Subscribers get the benefit of being able to download high quality PDF versions of the magazine, before they are released to the general public. Pick when you join carefully though as the free gift varies in quality month to month.
Alas the coverdisc is no more but as Apple are killing off the optical drive in Mac's, it makes sense for MacFormat to drop this from it's cover.
Well worth a read and at the subscriber price, a fantastic bargain - especially with the eVersion thrown in as well.
Summary: Helpful for all Mac users - espcially new ones.
