Micro Mart

Micro Mart's aim is to inform, entertain and involve enthusiasts of all ages and to share our passion for computing with them in a humanised, opinionated and accessible manner.

Anthony Enticknap, Editor

The Magazine 

Since its launch in 1985, Micro Mart has been the first place users look for the UK's best and most up-to-date computer deals. Micro Mart is the ONLY IT consumer weekly in the UK and sells more copies over the month than ANY other response driven title - over 1 million issues sold every year. Micro Mart’s substantial editorial content - over 90 pages minimum each week – covers news, reviews, features, group tests and technical help.

The magazine's personality-driven style reflects the dozens of writers from across the country who contribute to it, and it allows us to bring in lively debate, bad jokes and up-to-the minute tech opinions. This is all backed up by a thriving online community, with thousands of readers directly interacting with the magazine’s writing team.

In short, it's a weekly home for computer enthusiasts, regardless of age, location or expertise. It's fast, responsive, and - over 20 years after it launched – still the place that enthusiasts look first.
