APC (formerly known as Australian Personal Computer) is a computer magazine in Australia. It is published monthly and comes with a cover-mounted DVD of software. The magazine is published by Bauer Media Group.

According to the current editor, Tony Sarno, APC remains the personal computing magazine of choice for IT professionals and "power-users" (APC, June 2004, P10). The tagline on the front of the magazine is "high performance personal computing" which APC uses as its point of distinction from other computing titles published in Australia, such as PC User which targets beginner-medium users, and Atomic which targets gamers/modders.

APC was first published in May 1980 by Sean Howard and is the longest running computer-magazine in Australia.

The magazine also has a website, which publishes daily technology news (separate to what's in the printed magazine, with very few exceptions).


APC's staff journalists are:

  • Melanie Farr (Deputy Editor)
  • Peter Dockrill (Web Editor)
  • Conrad Bem (Notebook Hunter Editor)
  • Nick Race (Reviews Editor)
  • Troy Coleman (Art Director and Journalist)

Editors of APC:

  • Tony Sarno (2004–current)
  • David Flynn (2001–2004)
  • Nathan Taylor (2000)
  • Helen Dancer (1999–2000)
  • Steven Fear (1998–1999)
  • Jeremy White (1994–1998)
  • Maryanne Phillips (1992–1994)
  • Cathy Kennedy (1989–1992)

Cover disc

APC has a cover-mounted DVD each month containing a variety of software, which typically includes sample code, programs demonstrated in the magazine's Workshop pages, instructional videos, trial versions of new software and game releases and three to four “full-working versions” of programs that are no longer current editions.

APC first included a cover CD on its September 1996 issue. On its December 2004 issue, APC switched to DVD instead of CD and was the first IT publication in Australia to do so.
