    There are only 6 generation of the ipod.
    Although they started with an 80GB and a 160GB versions and at some point changed to a 120Gb version.

    So more like a generation 6.5 at best.

    The 120GB and the newer 160GB are sometimes referred to as "7th gen."

    There are a few differences from the 120GB (2008)/160GB (2009) vs the old 80GB/160GB model released in 2007, specifically:
    - Genius
    - Shortcuts from the Now Playing list that allows you to skip straight to the album or artist song list
    - Support for Apple Buds with Remote

    Original 80/160 gig (fatty, dual platter)=6G
    120 gig=6.5G
    2009+ 160 gig=7G

    As as i'm concerned, the current classic is the 6.2.
    Original 80 and 160gb - 6.0
    120gb - 6.1
    160gb - 6.2
