So, given that nothing was announced in the classic iPod department the other day, I've decided to have a look at upgrading my current 30GB 5G iPod Video. I've only just gone past that with my library hitting 32GB these days, no sign of slowing down. I would also like to be able to keep full-rez photos on there, though maybe not my entire 40GB iPhoto library, but some of my favourites for sharing with friends (enable disk use, plug it into a computer, view it on a big screen), and also good for a backup of my photos. A 64GB iPod touch would probably be about right, but they're bloody expensive. I'll just wait till sometime next year when I'm out of school and can afford a 64GB iPhone. In the meantime, the remaining Classic is overkill for what I want to do, and I also don't like the look and feel of it physically, or the look and feel of the interface (these things are important too!). So what do y'all think about spending US$140 for Apricorn's upgrade kit. It includes a new battery, the 120GB hard drive (which I gather is a 5mm thick single platter drive, as they say in their table that it'll work with the 30GB iPods while the bigger ones can go to 240GB), and the plastic tools required to open up the iPod. Has anybody done this kind of upgrade/heard of somebody doing it? Is Apricorn a reputable company? I'd never heard of them till today. Is this a good deal or would I be better off finding this hard drive independently? I'm probably fine in the tools department, and I'm already a customer at CanadaRAM and they sell the batteries for 18$ (i could indeed use a fresh battery in there). Any thoughts/comments would be most appreciated. I'm also a fan of keeping old gear running as long as possible and not adding to the pile of old electronics. My parents only just today upgraded from an old Blue Dalmatian iMac G3 to the latest iMac - should be good for another 9 years i hope!
