This month's issue

In the September issue of PC Advisor we present the fastest ever laptops, offering total power and true portability. Also in this issue we review the best Android smartphones you can buy, whether you're looking to make a purchase at the top- or bottom end of the market.

We also summarise the best travel gadgets if you're about to jet off on a summer holiday, take an in-depth look at the differences between Siri, Cortana and Google Now, the three voice assistants, and find out which processor is best: those from Intel or AMD.

Our extensive how to section covers everything from removing your name from Google Search results to using Google Analytics to better understand your website or blog's traffic and building your own fonts.

We've also got plenty of opinion, analysis of all the latest tech news, our unique Top 5 charts, reader Q&A and so much more.
