If you are choosing to buy one that comes in multiple colors, what color will you be getting? What size (space wise)? Include any other details that you'd like to add!

I'm buying the iPod classic 160GB in silver. I wish it had a touchscreen but I'm going to Buffalo anyways to buy an iPhone too and unlock it to use in Canada.c:D

iPod Touch, 16GB. My iTunes library is under 10GB, so it's perfect. I prefer flash storage and love the touchscreen but don't need an iPhone (and can't get one in Canada anyway). This is exactly what I've been hoping for!

iPod touch!!!!!!!

i can't wait to get mine. i don't get why everyone's screaming about the small capacity. i've had a 1 gig nano for the past 2 years and really don't find it a pain to switch out its contents from time to time.

someone please explain the need to have your whole library in your pocket.:confused:

the wifi is the topper!! anyone think you'll be able to use email with it?

If this isn't sarcasm - what are they lacking now that they had in the past? Monochrome non-click-wheel iPod? Original Mini? Black Nano?

Oh...maybe you mean you don't like the new fatty Nano? I can see that. What did AI say yesterday - the red-headed stepchild that everybody's already ridiculed is really being released? Does seem like the only miscue in this whole lineup.

I bought the 80GB Classic (I already have 32GB of music on my iPod now). The Touch is great but not enough capacity for me and I probably won't use it for what it's meant to be used for I figure if I want to watch movies on the go that's what my MBP is for, after all it goes everywhere with me.

Besides the iPod Classic now comes in Silver to match my brand new MBP and the extra HDD space will be very handy to replace my thumb drive for quick files storage when I need it.

I've owned ipods since Generation 2. So that's 2,3,4,5,5.5gb as the storage capacity has increased.

But... I really want an ipod with the touchscreen but with large storage capacity. I'd be happy to plough down 499 on that and was ready with my CC during the announcments.

I don't want an ipod classic. At this stage I want a design change.

But i do want the storage capacity of 160gb.

So can I buy a new touch screen ipod with 160gb HDD ? No.
Choose old style with bigger HD, or new style with next to no storage for music and video. (for me anyway)



Therefore I'm afraid to say....

Apple no longer offer me an ipod I want to upgrade/update to.

I don't have any iPod now, and if there is any one of these I might buy, it would be touch. A simple media player isn't what I need.

Sep 5, 2007, 03:22 PM
I'm just not positive on what kind of iPod I will be buying. I absolutely love the iPod Touch, but I don't know if I can let myself pay for something that is exactly like the iPhone minus the phone part.... you know? My contract is with T-Mobile, so I wasn't able to buy the iPhone when it was released. I'm also worried about storage space on the Touch, but it's not a huge concern. I don't know how big my Library will grow in a matter of months and years and I'm sitting on 10 GB of music right about now. Decisions, decisions!

Sep 5, 2007, 03:24 PM
I ordered an 80 gig iPod Classic (Black).
I think the Touch looks interesting, but I use my iPod as a backup for my Macbook and need the HD capacity.
Nice to get 80 gigs now for the same price as 30 was before the updates today. :)

The local mom and pop water ice shop had this problem. Too many choices, so people went to Rita's. Had Apple not released the iPod touch, you would have gotten an iPod Classic and been happy. But since you see a different design, you convince yourself you don't want anything.

Sep 5, 2007, 03:28 PM
This is a really tough call. Before today, I thought there'd be no way they'd put a browser on the touch model, so I was set on getting a nano.

The nano still looks great, and the price is right, but the touch is very tempting with its wifi features. That's huge, I would use those all the time. I just wonder how hard it is to find wifi hotspots (especially free ones) outside the house. I wish there was some way to check that before buying one.

And now even the iPhone is way cheaper, even the 4 gig for $299 is very tempting since I'm mostly interested in the browser functionality.

I may need to just go to the apple store and play with them all, right now I know I want one but I'm stumped on which.

Me too (I hope). My birthday is in about a month and a half. I only want the 8GB. Mainly because I'll use it mostly for browsing and because I only have an iTunes library of 5GB. Also, I'll likely end up paying for a good chunk of it, so I don't want to pay the extra $100.

Sep 5, 2007, 04:08 PM
None.

I was hoping for a nano with 12 or 16GB (to replace my 6GB mini). So I may have to wait for the next size bump. Or convince myself that the larger size of the touch is okay.

(I was hoping to switch from having my iPod clipped to my pocket or belt to wearing it around my neck. Hence I wanted a nano.)

I was a bit surprised they stopped having 3 sizes of nanos but the reason became clear when Steve started talking about the Classic. I.E with 4 models in the lineup they needed to have fewer variations of the nano. And save the 16GB for the touch too I guess.

Sep 5, 2007, 04:31 PM
I think I won't be getting an iPod soon since the design concept of the iPods has changed. I already disliked the 2nd gen nano's design but now there is no iPod left that matches the slick, sexy design of the white Macbooks and the old iMacs:(
this is just sad...the white color used to be the trademark of iPods and now that trademark has been replaced by color options that aren't even nice to look at (I liked the old shuffle's color options way better).

Maybe an old one. Will prices for the current 80GB model will drop to below $250? The classic (5.75?) one feels outdated like what's already out there but the touch lacks the capacity that I've been looking for. I have about 40GB of music now + planned to encode season 3 of the office (no longer though). Deciding what to listen to every day and transferring files over really annoys me. But I need to get something since my 3rd gen died a few months ago... I'd been hoping for the best of both worlds here. The old backup 512MB iriver isn't cutting it.

And the first iPod was only 5 GB. So the iPod touch has more capacity then the original iPod where Steve said this.

I want a black nano and a black classic...I like the iPhoneminusthephone they announced but the way I see it, my iPhone is in my pocket EVERYWHERE I go, why would I buy the same thing again but lose capability? So here's what I'm looking forward to...the 16GB iPhone. The $200 price drop leaves much room for the addition of the 16 gigger, so if that releases I'm going to try to sell off this one, get that one :D I love the classic and nano though :)

Sep 5, 2007, 06:36 PM
While juggling money around for a 24" iMac, I think it's going to have to wait for a little longer...because I really want the 16GB ipod touch.

I bought a 15GB 3G ipod back in 2003, and around the 04/05 holiday season the drive crapped out, replacing it with a 20GB and a new battery it still chugs along very nicely :)

So a 16GB ipod touch is fine to me, most of you are forgetting that the mainstream ipod just 4 years ago was 10GB or 15GB, yea true it didn't hold video or photos, but we all managed and did anybody complain?

I would advise to anybody undecided to really think about flash memory, it's much more durable and easy on the battery life. After my 15GB 1.8" drive dying I really don't rely on HDD based ipods, sure they're much cheaper per GB but remember, it's not a question of if you're HDD is going to die, it's a question of WHEN it's going to die...

lol, the screen and wifi also really make me want one, remember I'm coming from a 2" black and white screen!

I am almost definitely going to buy a 16GB touch. It is big enough to hold everything that i will need it to hold so size won't be a problem. Plus it's awesome. Only problem is that it is a tad expensive, so i guess i'll have to pinch a few pennies.:apple:

I already have the 8GB iPhone, so getting an iPod Touch seemed redundant to me and I opted for the 160GB iPod Classic (Black). It's my first "iPod" and couldn't be more excited. Congrats for all those getting the iTouch too! If you haven't played with an iPhone yet, you will love it!

Sep 5, 2007, 08:27 PM
Not really sure but if I do it will be the iTouch 16GB. I'm somewhat disappointed, I don't understand why they went the iPhone route? I thinking I should save my $500 for the iPhone since I already have a 30GB iPod Movie.

Who knows how I'll feel when I walk into Yorkdale Apple? LOL Take my recent 24" 2.4GHz iMac, I said I would wait it out until Leopard and I walked out with one.

Sep 5, 2007, 08:32 PM
I was kinda bummed, cause I actually thought the 'touch' came in 80gb and 160gb respectively.

Then again....I've never owned an Ipod Video, so I'll be going with the 160gb classic.

Another question.

When I tried to order with my Educational Discount, the prices were the same as if I were to go through the normal store.

Are the new Ipod's not valid under the discount program??

Sep 5, 2007, 08:41 PM
iPods are exempt from the Edu discount. Sucks, I know.

Sep 5, 2007, 09:44 PM
I'm going to go ahead and get an 80GB 'classic' model. My varied musical tastes and disdain for planning what I want to listen to ahead of time are greater than the obsolete feel of the classic model. No need for the 160GB version; I have no desire to watch video on a screen that small.

Still I hate the name "Classic." For an electronic item it sounds like it's already old the day I open the box. I want to call it the 5.75 gen instead of 6th, the update seems so minor.

When storage capacity catches up to my needs I'll ebay this and get a widescreen model. Until then... at least I have something in the interim to replace my dead 3g ipod.

I thought about getting an iPod Classic, but I realized that me and portable HDD's do not go together under any circumstances.

So I'm getting a silver 4 GB nano. It does video if I need it (I rarely watch movies or TV) and my music library is only 1.5 GB, and for $150, it's just too sweet of a deal.


I'm trying to decide should I get a 3G iPod nano 8 GB or the iPod Classic 80 GB. My worry is that hard drives DO fail, and I don't want to lose my music collection on the player because of this.

VL-Tone
Sep 6, 2007, 03:03 AM
I'm very hesitant, iPod nano 4/8GB or iPod touch 8GB?

I have a very small music collection, less than 2GB. That's minuscule compared to what some of you brag about (80GB+ music libraries? sigh...). Sometimes I wonder if people aren't building huge music libraries and brag about them to compensate for the lack of something else :rolleyes:

So I'd probably be happy with a 4GB nano (I currently have a 2GB first gen nano), though for video I might want some more space, but only for a few clips and maybe a couple of full length movies or TV shows, 8GB would be well enough for my video needs. I don't see the use of having my full library of movies and TV shows with me all the time. These are the kind of things that you don't watch over and over again.

But I'm also very interested in the iPod touch. The interface, multi-touch, wi-fi and Safari are all very tempting to me. The possibility of an eventual NES emulator and other cool hacks is also very interesting.

But aside from the extra $ I'll have to shell out to get an iPod touch, one major thing is bugging me: The lack of tactile feedback for music playback control.

95% of the time when I'm using my current 1st gen nano, I use it without looking, skipping tracks and often adjusting the volume against noisy environments. It looks like it'd be very hard to control the iPod touch (or the iPhone, for that matter) without looking. Also the "hold/lock" mechanism is much less straightforward than on the nano.

This single fact may be the reason why I'll get a nano instead.

I was hopping that Apple would release a shuffle shaped Bluetooth remote for this new touch-screen iPod, but seeing as the iPod touch doesn't even include Bluetooth I don't see that happening. I guess they could do one similar to the radio tuner (which more than probably doesn't work with the touch or iPhone), but having wires coming both from the device and to the headphones is cumbersome.

After my 15GB 1.8" drive dying I really don't rely on HDD based ipods, sure they're much cheaper per GB but remember, it's not a question of if you're HDD is going to die, it's a question of WHEN it's going to die...


I agree with what you say regarding the benefits of flash memory in terms of battery life etc, however it's not entirely infallible as you seem to suggest. Flash Memory has a finite number of erase-write cycles, so every time you write to it, you're slowly counting down from that finite number. When it reaches zero, that particular memory location will likely be dead.

Fortunately because the iPod is written to fairly infrequently but read constantly, this works to its advantage. I just wanted to point out the downside of flash memory (besides cost) because there does seem to be a lot of people out there who people it's totally invincible :p

To answer the thread topic, I think I'll be buying a 160GB iPod Classic, or a 5.5G 80GB iPod Video (if they're going very cheap now the Classic is out). I would have loved an iPod Touch but there's not enough storage and I'm not paying 40 more for 10% of the storage of a 160GB iPod Classic with fancy touch screen.

The thing about the touch is yes, it's a helluva device but I just can't justify spending 200 on 8GB of NAND as opposed to 160 for 80GB of HDD. My music library is constantly growing and I can't be bothered picking and choosing my music when I can carry it all.

Plus, I like the slightly retro iPod design of the classic. Does anyone else think it looks like a thinned out 4G?

I was very upset by this update, i think Apple destroyed their iPod lineup and lost a chance to sell tons and tons of Touches if they just put a hard drive in them. I have 32GB+ of music, no way in hell will i pay $400 and be able to hold half of my music library! Touch would have been perfect for the 160GB hard drive, it could hold everyone's music and movies!

I need an iPod so I'm going for the 80GB classic. I don't know what color yet (i don't like the finish on either honestly) but i'll probably end up going with silver. The cost:capacity ratio is just amazing, it's just a shame it's sort of a boring update beyond that... :o

I'm getting a 160GB Classic, just got to decide which colour to go with.

I thought I would get the black but the silver is starting to grow on me. I'll probably make my mind up when I see them in the shops.

Some of us audiophiles like to have all of our music on hand! My music library being 7GB, I have plenty to listen to when I tote them all at once.

An audiophile with a 7gb music collection? Isn't that a bit of an oxymoron?

I ordered an 80 gig iPod Classic (Silver).

I have a iPod + Photo 30G which just died two weeks ago. I have 23G of music and will want to add movies to the new iPod.

I'll wait to buy the Touch when I can get it with at least 60G of space. Should be in a year or two.

On second thoughts, I might wait for the refurbs to come in so I can get a 16GB or save me some extra on a 8GB to save for my MacBook...

Are all of the new Ipods available at retail outlets such as Best Buy, or can they only be ordered through Apple? The 2nd generation Nano that I have was purchased at Best Buy.

I'm also wondering how practical the wi-fi is on the new touch screen Ipods. I'm not interested in the ability to buy songs when I'm at Star Bucks, but I haven't used wi-fi that much and just wondering how many places, or what kind of places provide a wi-fi signal? I may end up just staying with my older Nano as it in good shape, and it does the basic thing I need...plays music.

Nothing. My first-gen shuffle is still chugging along just fine. I have no use for video.

The only device that's remotely tempting is the touch, but since I generally bring my iBook with me when I go out, it's really not necessary.

One feature that could eventually convince me to get a touch is some sort of remote-control function. After all, it's got wifi, so why can't I use it to control my home music network?

Shouldn't there be an option for 'none'

Apple no longer off me an ipod I want to buy.


Why??? What have they done specifically to make you feel that way?
What model do they "no longer offer you"?

And the first iPod was only 5 GB. So the iPod touch has more capacity then the original iPod where Steve said this.

LMAO!!!! Awesome comeback dude! :D

In saying this - you may have answered a burning question i have....

> Will preordering through apple mean i get it before it''s in stores?

I would hope so, i just don't know for sure.

Anyone know?

I'll most likely be buying the Touch after the reviews start coming in. ...If they're poor I'll give Apple some time to make necessary fixes.

It was the WiFi that convinced me. :D
