This month's issue
Also in this issue we explain the new features in Windows 10, and explain why every Windows user should upgrade (for free). That's not the only way you can breathe new life into your old PC either - our budget graphics cards round-up shows you how you can make more of games from as little as £45.
We've gone review-crazy in this issue, and also compare the best web browser for Windows, PDF editors and inkjet printers. And our standalone reviews cover everything from the new Toshiba Chromebook 2 ro the Samsung Galaxy Alpha and Fitbit Charge HR.
There's loads more, too, including useful advice on how to make money from your hobbies, boost your router security, prevent your webcam being hacked and more, plus our usual selection of news, analysis and buying advice.

Internet security suites
Malware is about money now, and the commercialisation of security ‘exploits’ may have left you more exposed than you think. We look at six mid-range internet security suites.
Budget graphics cards
Spectacular performance with superb detail may not be on offer but, as we discovered when we tested seven sub-£100 cards, decent-enough game-playing speed, framerate and resolution most certainly is.
Best browsers for Windows
You want to know that your web browser is fast and secure – and has a few extra features to make the online experience easier. We test six browsers to find which is best for Windows.
