PC Advisor Awards 2012 - Nominations and Winners

We are proud to present our roll-call of honour: the best of the past year’s technology, and our guide to the brands you can trust and the sites from which to buy.

The votes have been counted and verified and we are proud to announce the winners of the PC Advisor Awards 2012. As with last year’s awards, there were nearly two-dozen prizes. Many of our award categories were wrangled over by our team of reviewers and writers, while the rest was decided by PC Advisor readers.

The purpose of the PC Advisor Awards is to showcase excellence across the diaspora of products and services we cover online, in digital magazines and apps, and right here in the PC Advisor print magazine. Nominees and winners have been chosen from a year's worth of reviews, so each represents the best of the best in its particular category.

For the hardware awards, we’ve split up the editorial categories along similar lines to the hardware charts we update every month, while we’ve divided the software section by program type.

In each case, products in contention had to have been reviewed by PC Advisor editors during 2011. Those reviews could have been online or in print – or most often both.

In addition, there are five PC Advisor Reader Awards. More than 8,000 UK consumers voted for their best laptop and desktop PC brands, the best online retailers, and the gadget of the year via our online survey. From the votes we receive we were able to deduce valuable feedback about the PC and laptop brands you favour and how well they live up to expectations. Check out our 2012 Readers Awards winners here.
