Powerline magazine provided in-depth reviews of new computer hardware releases, as well as technical articles and discussion forums for readers. The magazine was one of the leading computer publications in Australia during the 1990s and early 2000s, and was known for its comprehensive coverage of the PC hardware market.

The magazine had a loyal following among computer enthusiasts and professionals, who appreciated its technical depth and unbiased reviews. Powerline's editorial team included experienced computer journalists and hardware experts, who were regularly called upon to speak at computer industry events and conferences.

Powerline faced increasing financial difficulties in the 2010s, as the market for computer magazines declined and online distribution of computer hardware reviews became more prevalent. The magazine ceased publication in December 2013, with the final issue containing a retrospective on the history of the magazine.

Despite its closure, Powerline remains a respected name in the Australian computer industry. The magazine's archives are a valuable resource for computer history researchers, and its former staff members continue to be active in the industry.{{Categories}}
