Just finished reading one of the 1990 issues in which they introduce the new Mac LC. Interestingly, they already used the term "pizzabox" to describe its shape. What tools they used for benchmarking in 1993 ("speedometer") or how they would lament the lack of "real, native PowerPC" Mac software in July 1994. Always liked their approach to go so much deeper in their reviews than other, more consumer-oriented magazines. Digging it!

Thanks for this upload, I love digging in old mac-related articles and that was an interesting read.

Yes, is it always. On MacUp, or MacWelt, when I would find again the small side note about Mac OS 7 running on Intel processor types (which was a tiny rumor at its time).
