One of the top monthly PC magazines, Maximum PC, has a pdf archive of back issues which you can read online or download if you wish. Obviously you won’t find the current issue there as this is only for subscribers and retail so the latest available issue in the archive is generally 3 to 4 months old but really that’s no problem. Many of the articles aren’t time-sensitive, for example Windows tips and how-tos, etc. And of course, the pdfs are searchable.
So download some back issues and see what you think. Do you know of any other tech magazines which have pdf archives? Drop a comment below and let us know.
