Dear Charles,

Welcome to the latest PC Pro newsletter

News headlines: The Advertising Standards Authority rules that a 250MB mobile data limit somehow counts as an "unlimited" service; Intel's Classmate tablet arrives in the UK; and check out all of our videos from CES, including Microsoft's innovative programming tool for kids, and a hands on with Sony's P-series netbook

This week's new reviews: Nvidia strikes back with the blisteringly fast GeForce GTX 295; Lenovo goes budget with the SL500 laptop; and we review our first Phenom II-based desktop, Mesh's Matrix II

New issue of PC Pro on sale today! In this month's issue: Could you save hundreds of pounds on your broadband by going mobile? We put 15 security suites through their paces in the UK's biggest ever test; upgrade your gadgets for free; Davey Winder discovers the small print shockers lurking in software Ts & Cs; we test all 20 of the current ATI and Nvidia chipsets in our graphics card labs; and seek out lost files with iolo's Search & Recover on the cover disc.

PC Pro podcast: On this week's show the team debates the slow death of the trade show; the impact of search on polar bears; and LG's novel new phone watch is nominated as our Hot Hardware of the Week. Download it now

Best of the blogs: Tom Arah reflects on the fatal flaw at the heart of netbooks; David Bayon shoehorns Windows 7 on to his netbook; and Tim Danton gets under the skin of HP's latest netbook
