April issue of PC Advisor available for iPad

The April 2012 issue of PC Advisor is now available to read on your iPad. You can read a free sample of issue 201 by installing the free PC Advisor Magazine app for iPad, which also includes all of issue 200, for free.

PC security superguide

Want a faster, safer PC? Look no further: PC Advisor is at hand to help make your PC - and its owner - more productive and efficient. Our simple guide shows you how to boost any Windows PC in just 10 minutes, with 25 free and simple tips, tricks and downloads.

Best-ever Blu-ray

You've probably heard us bang on about backup before. It's important, you know. Blu-ray writers and recordable discs are falling in price, making them a more viable medium for exactly that task. They're useful for playing back HD movies on a PC, too. We've reviewed the latest internal and external drives from the market leaders.

Media Centre PCs group test

Our Test Centre has also been busy reviewing six ultra-quiet media PCs, designed to sit unobtrusively in a living room, where they'll dish out all manner of audiovisual entertainment. And we've got six business laptops, too, with all the right credentials to get work done in the office or on the fly.

Tutorials, tests, tips and tricks

Our How to section explains how to roll back hardware drivers to fix a grouchy Windows PC, add HTML 5 video to your website and QR codes to your marketing materials, and even experiment with lomo photography to get that reto lo-fi look.

All this, plus our unique Top 5 charts, technology news, reviews and analysis, reader Q&A and more.
