Would of brought this but at 14 it way to high for a magazine. Amiga future is only 6.75 and includes a CD. What are they thinking I know Amiga stuff is more expensive due to limited sales. That does not mean we can and well be taken for complete mugs.....

@g01df1sh
Your calculations look wrong to me:

When I checked the price of a single issue of Amiga Future including shipping, it came to 8.50 Euros (7.33) withOUT a CD, and 11.50 Euros (9.92) WITH a CD.

By comparison, the new Amiga User magazine lists itself as costing 14 Euros (i.e. 12) including shipping.

So yes, on a like for like basis, AU is more expensive than AF, but not by as much as you are saying (7.33 vs 12). Hopefully they get enough readers that they can afford to reduce the price (printing on dead trees costs a lot).

I notice that Amiga User offer a PDF-only version (something that Amiga Future do NOT offer *), at just 4 Euros (3.50), which makes them half the price of AF:

(* which is why I no-longer get Amiga Future)

Looking at the OS books on the same site they do offer a lot better value for money than the magazines. Hopefully when I get A1222 I will buy OS4 book

I placed an order for a copy and figured that I should finally get the OS 4.1 Everyday book too while I was at it. Keep up the hard work - looks like this group is producing some great things for the community!

One thing missing, which might tempt me to buy the real magazine, is a sample PDF (or even images) that contains a few pages of the real magazine.
