It's now called the iPod classic and is not a touch screen model.
New iPod time!!!
It's bigger than my Mac's hard drive
Just imagine - I could carry a backup around with me
is this legit or the work of a photo shop expert
Are you seriuosly asking this question?
Apple Releases iPod Classic
Apple released the iPod Classic at the "Beat Goes On" special media event today, revamping what was the current full-size iPod in the lineup. It features a thinner, full metal body. Capacity has been increased to either 80GB or 160GB versions. Specs are as follows:
80GB - $249
160GB - $349 - 40 hrs music playback, 7 hrs video playback
This is freaking great. Enough space for all my 35gb of music, a bunch of videos, AND the functionality of an extremely portable, spacious external drive.
Woohoo!! Go Apple
Personally for me a 160GB 'Pod is perfect, just what I have been waiting for
I have a feeling the classic line will suffer in sales when there is the iPod touch line now
Still Love my Mini
I still love my mini, so I'm thrilled to see the large iPod take on the metal case.
Can't wait to see it in person!
i'm tempted by that battery life
Except for those like me that have 120GB+ of MP3's, until a large capacity iPhone comes along anyway.
Does anyone remember when the classic iPod was this one?
I wonder if you can use the new iPods with Time Machine... that'd be wickeddd
that is a lot of music dude lol
do you even get a chance to listen to all those songs
Not all at once but I have a wide choice to pick from. It's one of the advantages of being old and still also liking the stuff you were into thirty years ago while adding all the new in the meantime
Not a big fan - big capacity, but who can listen to 40K songs? Who needs the whole library? Getting cross-eyed at watching video - the touch is where it is at, but the price is too high.
Hey, it's that "split" UI from that mockup
iPod Classic? Ugly as hell (IMO), but 160gb? jeez. That would just about hold my entire iTunes library!
I think the metal finish is a way for the iPod to stay cool since its quite larger capacity, am I right?
You would think at 40hours of playblack you would also get more than 7 hours of video. I get close to 20hours for audio out of my A2 and 9 for video and that has a 4in screen. Hmm, something sounds odd there.
I never will. But I don't have to decide any more on which playlists to put on the ipod and which to leave off due to capacity. Or worry about which playlists to remove in order to fit those photos or videos onto the ipod.
I'm just happy "the classic" is still here. I'd hate to have had to choose between a touch and a nano if the classic was gone. Now I just have to wait for the weekend for them to be in store Wonder how they'll look IRL...
Now nobody can really complain about capacity -- can they?
You forget where you are...
I want dimensions of the 80Gb.. it's the only one that's interested me out of today's line-up. I see no point in the nano, seriously, what a completely pointless generation leap (more capacity? No of course not) and I plan on getting an iphone to replace my 2g nano (thus the touch is of no purpose either)
