I like the format and I read it, like you I generally and too busy to read rambling marketing documents, I just don't bother.
However the Stardock Magazine is interesting and gives me an insight in to the way things are going.ie Win 7 is dead Win 10 is the way to go. I would like to suggest that you keep the format, so thats its informative and gives the products a plug, but mostly its informative. I would like to see more insights in to the future, it allows people to make better decisions when buying a new machine or building one, following your Build you own PC article.
I have built quite a lot of PC's and matching the correct parts together is a challenge. When you do you get a good machine.
Keep up the good work.
