PC Update is Melb PC's newsletter (previously, our magazine).

The PDF collection below contains issues from Aug-2012 through to the latest issue.

Melbourne PC User Group was formed in September 1983, and the first issue of PC Update appeared in March 1984 under the title MELB-PC.  The name was changed to
PC Update in September of the same year and has remained unchanged ever since.  In the past, the magazine has won numerous International awards.  PC Update has been published in various formats, firstly as a printed newsletter, then printed magazine, PDF magazine, and currently as a PDF newsletter.
