This is our choice of the best magazines published for retro-computing. Occaisonally we even put our opinions into the editorial content. More more retrocomputer magazines are being published all of the time. We think that it is worth reviewing the current and the retrospective journals to really get a feel of the retrocomputer scene. I believe that you should put aside any preconceptions that you have about reading older magazines. Many of these quality microcomputer magazines have not aged. Micromputer articles are interesting for both geneeral information and new insights that did not exist in the day. So put your slippers up, relax with your favourite beverage, and enjoy the read.
