This month's issue

In the latest issue of PC Advisor we bring you the results of our mobile broadband road trip with Broadband Genie - just which operator offers the UK's fastest 3G and 4G network?

We also reveal the best-value in-ear and over-ear headphones under £50, assess the merits of home vs online printing, explain the Internet of Things and get pally with Windows Phone 8.1's Cortana. If you want to cover your digital footprint, clean bloatware off your PC or increase your productivity we'll show you how, and we explain the best upgrades for getting the most out of your PC.

And there's more: our extensive news and analysis section covers everything from smartwatches and smartglasses to electric cars, free Wi-Fi and a glimpse at Intel's vision for the PC.

We've got 49 PC and laptop reviews, as well as expert opinion on the latest smartphones, smartwatches, hard drives, printers, scanners, apps, software… loads of stuff.

And you can expect our usual Helproom reader Q&A, useful how to workshops and unique Top 5 charts. Grab your copy of PC Advisor today!
