This is something of a heritage for this publication, which can trace its roots back to the beginning of the personal computing industry.
Today we read everything online. But there was a time when PC Magazine was printed on dead trees. At the birth of the personal computing industry, PC Magazine was typically 400 or more pages. It would land on your desk with a loud thud, and you would stop what you were doing and read every last page.
For me that hasn't changed. I hit PC Mag.com religiously. So to get four out of five stars from PC Magazine is both a personal rush, and a testament to Alpha Five's capability and ease of use. I encourage you to read the review and watch the slideshow -- especially if you're not an Alpha Five customer, and are exploring new options for your preferred development platform.
I want to thank you to Samara for her effort in producing the review. Samara didn't just give us a test drive and cough up a half-baked opinion. She put the product through its paces. And for that, we and PC Magazine's readers are better off.
