Synopsis: Provides comprehensive coverage of basic principles of PC hardware theory and operation for beginning to advanced users, with boxes containing more detailed technical information. Chapters on processors, traffic control, disks, storage, BIOS, DOS, and printers feature exercises and projects and sample programs in BASIC. Color illustrations and captions explain hardware such as motherboards, system buses, chips, and PC insides. This sixth edition has material on plug-n-play, RISC architecture, multimedia, and software trends. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

Review: Peter Norton's Inside the PC, this new edition included, is an excellent resource for those who need a broad-brush introduction to personal computer technology. It gives succinct explanations of important technologies--including information for shoppers--and even provides a high-level explanation of what computer programming is all about.

A book like this can't expect to stay current for long, and time has already introduced some shortcomings: There's no coverage of the new 66 Mbps Ultra DMA standard and the controller cards needed to implement it. Similarly, the authors neglect any discussion of the controversial serial number feature of the Intel Pentium III and (less excusably) barely touch on digital photography.

Nonetheless, Peter Norton's Inside the PC has a very readable style--it's possible to sit down with this book, enjoy reading it, and come away more knowledgeable than when you began. It's also handy as a reference--you can look up mysterious PC terms here and expect to find a good explanation. --David Wall

Topics covered: Inside IBM-standard PCs, processors, disks, memory, peripherals, networking (including the Internet), and the newest developments in 3-D audio and video.
