Australian Computer News Sites
The sites listed here are the major computing publications in Australia. All sites represent weekly or monthly printed publications which reproduce a substantial portion of their print content on-line. Some of these sites refresh their news content on a daily basis.


Australian Personal Computer
Australia's longest-established monthly personal computer magazine targeted - to some degree - at power users rather than first-timers or amateurs. This site is updated monthly and features lead stories from the current issue, news features and hardware and software reviews.
