PC World: Australia's fastest growing computer magazine

Competitive titles Australian Personal Computer and PC User were stagnant during the period, while PC Authority offered modest growth of 6% or 2890 copies in its Australian circulation. PC Magazine Australia has audited a massive drop in circulation of 7606 copies or 21.2%.

The December issue of PC World gained a new hot design. The new look included additional editorial sections, interface and packaging changes to the CD-ROM, and a completely new Web site. These changes resulted in record sales for the issue.

"The full effect of the redesign of PC World has not impacted on the December 1999 ABC audit. We expect even better numbers for our advertisers in the next ABC audit period and beyond," stated Mike Udabage, Vice President of IDG's PC Division.

Strategy for growth

PC World's current audit rise is the 18th consecutive period of ABC audit growth for the publication.

IDG's future growth strategy for PC World is based on a commitment to continue to deliver the best value computer publication on the market - on paper, CD-ROM, the Web and via e-mail.

"Australian readers desire on-the-pulse local content as well as leading reports on the events shaping the technology-driven global economy," said Ben Gerholt, Editorial Director of IDG's PC Division. "PC World's strength is that we are able to deliver on these requirements using our strong local editorial team and the worldwide resources of IDG Communications."

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
