TV over the internet and media streaming isn’t the future anymore, it’s here, and trying to figure out how to get all the parts working can be incredibly frustrating. Our TV Anywhere feature in the March issue gets you on the road to connecting all your TV bits together, and we’ve got a monster networking guide planned for later in the year as well as how-to articles to get you up and running.

We’re also finally able to reveal details of the AMD’s new Phenom II – it’s impressive and once the price drops a bit, we reckon it’ll go gangbusters.

We’ve also had a good length of time to finally sort and sift through the features of Windows 7 – we think you’ll love it as much as we have, especially once you check out our pick of the best bits.

With the clean feed looking possible this year, we thought we’d see how well a similar system protects children in the UK, where a clean feed has been up and running since 2004. Discover the disturbing truth only in the March issue.

Last but not least, we got Acer and Altech i7 systems head to head. Acer aims for affordable power, while Altech goes all-out power assault: which one is worth your money? We have the answers.

We’ve had requests for Phenom II vs i7 matchups, and we’re asking manufacturers for systems to make it a reality, so keep a look out for upcoming issues of PC Authority!
