It's now called the iPod classic and is not a touch screen model.

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 :)

I have a feeling the classic line will suffer in sales when there is the iPod touch line now

Right back where I started...
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.

iPod Classic? Ugly as hell (IMO), but 160gb? jeez. That would just about hold my entire iTunes library!

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...

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)
