What Apple and or Mac magazines do you buy or subscribe to. Which would you recommend for a new Apple user. Why would you recommend or not recommend any.

I would like to find a good magazine that will have product tests, tutorials, and any other good topics.

The magazines are out of date before they hit the streets.
I check out Macworld.com on a regular basis, but haven't seen any paper magazines as being worthwhile, including MacWorld.

Newspapers and most magazines are basically dead. Newspapers are yesterday's news and Magazines are last month's news.
I used to love getting MacWorld and MacUser (they merged a long time ago), and whatever else I could find. But for many years they have been obsolete.

macworld.com isn't bad, but forums like ehmac are more interesting these days.

For this, I read MacWorld. They do lots of products, software and hardware, tests and they also give hints to how to used Apple software.

Sure, like some said, for news, they are a little bit late compared to the Internet, but that's the other feature that makes them great.
Computer magazines are among the oddest of ducks. Anyone with a computer is probably connected to the internet and can access 95% of the content for free, and a month or two before it appears in print.

That said, tutorial-based magazines, like iCreate do have some appeal. Useful information and great design, plus a CD which provides *real* extras, rather than a bunch of demo- or shareware.
I continue to subscribe to the electronic version of MacWorld through Zinio.
