--10th Anniversary issue of Computeractive on-sale 7th February--

Computeractive is celebrating 10 years of leading the PC press having consistently been the UK’s best-selling technology title, since launch!

The 10th anniversary issue of Computeractive is a landmark edition. With a fresh new design and new editorial sections to meet the needs of our evolving readership, Computeractive is setting its sights on another decade at the top of the market.

This investment in the title reflects Incisive Media's ongoing commitment to ensuring that the title meets the changing information needs of our readers. The new design, evolved through editorial leadership and a two way dialogue with our readers, has allowed us to broaden the magazine's appeal and make the magazine more relevant to its current readers whilst remaining true to its heritage of simple, clear advice in plain English.

Paul Allen, Editor of Computeractive said “The things that our readers have found most useful in the magazine will not change - the use of plain English, step-by-step guides and fiercely independent product reviews. To this we have added new sections that reflect the developing needs of home computer users and expanded areas which are highly popular, such as our product reviews.”
One new section is the Computeractive Masterclass. This regular feature will tackle more complex issues in Computeractive’s unique plain English style, helping the readership to achieve new heights of PC skills with the title.

Computeractive currently outperforms its nearest rival by 2:1. It sells 216,031 copies (Jan-Dec 2006 ABC) every fortnight and is read by 634,000 people (Q3, 2007 TGI).
