Welcome to the new-look PCN - the most dramatic transformation since Clark Kent stepped into a telephone booth.

We've kept all your favourite features - the most up-to-date news pages in the business, the searching Pro-Tests of software, hardware and peripherals, your letters, hints and tips, and questions.
But we've added a lot too. You'll find more than a dozen pages every week of things to do on your machine. Every week we'll have something for Spectrum, Commodore and BBC owners. But loyalists of other machines aren't forgotten. Whether you're interested in personal computing for games, business or just for its own sake, PCN is the magazine to read.
Issue 79 - September 22nd 1984
