Personal Computing,
was a monthly microcomputer periodical founded by David Bunnell in 1977 [1], launched by Benwill Publishing, Boston Massachusetts, and since December 1980 by Hayden Publishing Co. Inc. Rochelle Park, New Jersey, imprint of Macmillan Publishers, defunct in 1999.

In April 1978, Computer Chess became a monthly department in Personal Computing, initially a continuation of Douglas Penrod's Computer Chess Newsletters, from January 1979 until March 1981 edited by Harry Shershow supported by Morris Miller. The magazine also covered computer games like Checkers, Othello, Gomoku, and Go - Thomas A. Throop had a computer Bridge column. Kathe Spracklen's announcement in April 1981 to continue the editorship of the computer chess column [2], apparently put an end to it.

Most Personal Computing Magazines from 1977 until 1984 are available from the Internet Archive [3].
