Telling the difference between the 2007 iPod Classic & the late 2009 model

Hey Guys. Im intending on buying a iPod Classic within the next few days. However how do I tell the difference between the 160gb 2007 model and the late 2009 160gb model? The box? Size? Weight? Anything. Thanks will appreciate anything!

The 2007 model came in two models. The 160GB used a dual platter HD so was 3mm thicker than the single platter 80GB version.

The latest version uses a single platter 160GB HD, so is the same 10.5mm thickness as the original 80GB model. There was also a single platter 120 GB model released in-between.

The original 2007 classic featured a picture of Nelly Furtado on the box, the latest model features The Killers.

Two pretty big differences that are actually to do with the iPod are:
1. Genius mixes
2. Control by Headphones
