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
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)
