For real paper magazines, it depends on where you live. Usually PC Gamer has a few advanced articles, but I'm talking about the British version. If you're looking for online magazines, I watch Click Online once a week - a technology show that's pretty interesting (although it's designed for the masses so features some novice stuff).

CPU is about the only hardware-related mag I read anymore. Now and again I'll pick up a copy of Linux Format especially if the included media is good. But that's a British mag and costs $15 per issue in the States. Maximum PC tends to get a lot of mention, but I've never found it very worthwhile. It's by the same people who publish CPU, but aimed at a decidedly less-savvy crowd. Not too much use to the advanced user. Can't think of any other tech mags really... most tend to deal with software. I used to read CGW obsessively, but that went away when I discovered HOTROD and CHP :)

Popular Science has alot of stuff about technology in there, its been in publication for about 100 years. They don't talk alot about computer parts though:(

I've read RAM, MaximumPC (formerly "Boot"), Popular Science, Computer User, PC Gamer, PC Magazine, PC World, Wired, and CGW (Computer Gaming World). Recently I've subscribed to TUX, an online e-Magazine.

RAM (Resellers Advocate Magazine) is a small publication, that deals just as much in hardware, as the latest market trends. It is usually interesting.

Wired is from the same people that made MAD magazine. It is definately an interesting read, and their articles are always interesting.

Computer User is made like sort of like a Newspaper. It does not look as nice, and is not as easy to hold.

MaxPC, CGW, and PC World I used to read, just too see what the new games would be like. Three reviews are better than one.

PC Magazine has an article called Backspace. Well, one that is just a bunch of goofs, typos, and other funny things, computer related. Here is the free online version. http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1895,1269418,00.asp http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1895,1268371,00.asp http://www.pcmag.com/category2/0,1874,33,00.asp

There are also a lot of online tech shows that you can watch, and a lot of the old TechTV staff (before TechTV was killed) participate in these shows. TWIT (This Week In Tech), Systm, The Broken, etc...

See more HERE.
