I am about to buy a new classic model. My Generation 5 stopped working; buttons or click wheel not responding even after hard resets and itunes software updates. I see that most Wiki's list the latest version as a Generation 6, and Amazon lists the newest as Generation 7, whichever is correct I am not sure, but both of these were released in 2009. Before I plunk down a few hundred dollars I just wanted to ask the community if you know if there are any updates on the Classic on the horizon. Any news would be appreciated. Thanks!
