New iPod classic, Less Memory!!???

This sucks, i was planning on upgrading to the new iPod classics this year, when i heard that they only have 120GB now! That sucks, how am i supposed to fit 160GB worth of music, tv shows and stuff that i have now on an iPod with 40GB less? Is anyone else not happy with this?

Just buy a refurb 160GB iPod Classic now and then use it once your current one dies?

I can't believe this. I'm shocked they would think lowering capacity is a good idea. I'd happily pay an extra 50 bucks for 40GB more of space. What a bunch of lunatics.

Yeah I saw that and was like WTF. I guess because no one buys the 160gb.

while i have a 16gb iphone and 1gb shuffle, i still enjoy my 60gb 5th gen ipod. i was planning up upgrading when they announced something today, but a drop in capacity? i'll likely just get a 160gb refurb. the 120 is the same thickness as the 80, right?

They wanted to go with the same thickness of the 80GB and only the 120GB would fit. Still stupid if you ask me. Should have just kept the 160GB at the new 120GB price.
