Computist, originally known as Hardcore Computing, was an Apple II computer magazine published from 1981 to 1993 by Charles R. Haight and based in Eatonville, Washington. The magazine largely focused on techniques for removing copy protection from software through the use of "SoftKeys", pieces of code built to bypass the software's protection routines, but also published reviews including some by Jeff Hurlburt, creator of a revised Eamon master. Originally titled Hardcore Computing, it later became Hardcore Computist, then simply Computist; a sister publication called Core ran for only three issues.

The magazine republished the complete September 1989 issue of the Eamon Adventurer's Guild Newsletter in its issue 89, "to help publicize [Tom Zuchowski's] endeavors."
