Stay on top of the latest tech with PCWorld’s Digital Magazine. Available as single copies or as a monthly subscription, it highlights the best content from PCWorld.com—the most important news, the key product reviews, and the most useful features and how-to stories—in a curated Digital Magazine for Android and iOS, as well for the desktop and other tablet readers.

In the January issue

On the cover of the January issue is our hands-on of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8cx reference laptop, a fresh attempt to be faster. Our lab tests will tell you how Snapdragon stacks up against Intel. We also examine two of the top DNA testing services, explaining their differences and we help determine which one might be better for your situation. Plus, you'll find an exclusive first look at Creative Labs’ high-end SoundBlasterX AE-9; you have to hear it to believe it.

Other highlights include:

  • News: Meet T-Rex: Nvidia's Titan RTX is the new graphics card mega-monster
  • iPhone XR vs Android’s best: A razor-thin margin of victory
  • Sapphire Radeon RX 590 Nitro+ review: The new 1080p gaming champion
  • Google Pixel Slate review: So close, yet so far, from being a perfect Chrome-Android tablet hybrid
  • OnePlus 6T review: Android's rebel phone goes mainstream—with a punkish purple streak
  • Here's How: How to create Excel macros and automate your spreadsheets

Video highlights

Watch: The VortX by Whirlwind FX calls itself “the world’s first environmental simulator for PC gaming,” tackling that “immersion” problem all screen-bound games have by analyzing the action on-screen and blowing wind on your face to match. We had to try it.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
