The February issue of Australian Macworld has hit the shelves, and it’s a real cracker.

Our cover story is a look at which Mac is right for you. Six of our writers check out the pros and cons of MacBooks, MacBook Pros, MacBook Airs, the Mac mini, iMacs and Mac Pros – if you’re in the market for a new Mac, we’ve done your homework for you.

Also, it’s back to school time (Boo! Hiss!!), which means it’s also time to consider tech to make your studies easier or better. Adam Turner takes us through everything from computers and monitors to note-taking and mobile broadband.

The Lab Test this month is on portable storage – something we know our readers love to hear about. Anthony Caruana checks out small hard drives from LaCie, Verbatim, Seagate, WD, NewerTech and Hitachi.

Anthony has also written a step-by-step guide to upgrading a MacBook Pro’s hard-drive to solid state (SSD), a relatively easy process using an OWC kit which includes the SSD drive, tools and even an enclosure so you can use the original drive for backup.

Rounding out the mag are a varied and hugely helpful collection of columns, help, tips, cool gadgets and reviews for both your Mac and your iOS gear – including a look at the new Avid Pro Tools SE hardware bundles by our Business Development Manager Tara Brady, who just happens to be a qualified audio engineer.

    I see on the front cover that you are doing a review of Avid products. I’ll be buying a copy to read that article. I’ve no idea, yet, about your experiences, but my experiences in setting-up Avid Vocal Studio and Avid Key Studio have not been pleasant!

  2. meincrannie says:

    I’ve just read through my Mac World for the first time and the “Which Mac is right for you!” comparison article was highly informative, I particularly enjoyed the Pro/Con highlights which make me feel that I can rely on Mac World to tell it like it is.

  3. John A says:

    I’ve been having a great time with my Avid Key Studio but I’d like to record my friend’s singing so I’m keen to find out more about the mic in the Vocal Studio. Is it any good?
