Hi everyone, we've just launched our computer hardware section!
This continues where my hardware columns at the late PCW magazine left-off, so you'll find articles about achieving Hifi audio, building HTPCs etc.
My plan is to run the section like a blog, posting new articles as and when I come across an interesting tip or piece of equipment - so don't worry, camera reviews will remain my core focus here!
Some future articles for the section will also address issues facing digital photography, such as ideal amounts of RAM. If there's anything you'd like to see, let me know, and of course please continue to use this section of the forum to post your own hardware tips and questions.
Finally, a big welcome to any former PCW readers!
PS - this section is also for discussions on operating systems, but if you have any specific application questions, such as Photoshop, Lightroom etc, please post in our Imaging software section at
We also have dedicated sections for Displays, Storage and backup, and Printers, so if your question or tip is related to these, please post them in the most appropriate forum!
PPS - if you're wondering what happened to PCW magazine, please check out my obituary
