As with almost every year since the inception of the personal computer, 2022 saw huge growth in the range of products that PC aficionados could choose from as they planned their new machine, or upgraded what they already had with new go-faster bits and quality-of-life niceties.

Our team of PC writers know this conundrum intimately, and through each year we endeavour to provide expert advice on the gear that’s best for you through our reviews in APC, TechLife Australia, PC PowerPlay, TechRadar and here on PC Gamer.

Of the mountain of gear we look at each year, there are a handful of products that are clearly better than the rest. They are... the best.

And every year that coveted recognition is what the team here decides via our annual Australian PC Awards event. Right now, our Aussie editorial experts are distilling down the gear that excelled in each category and, from that list, will determine a set of absolute winners. We'll acknowledge the hard work, good design and quality manufacturing of the many companies and people behind them. These are the products that deserve to be elevated.

Join us as we acknowledge the pinnacle of excellence in the world of the PC. From components to accessories and peripherals, to laptops and systems, and the prestigious Excellence and Gold Awards, the Australian PC Awards exists to tap the best of the best, and to help PC buyers choose the gear that’s gold.
