I just went to the Apple store to check out the new iPods and i gotta say i was thrilled with the nano but very disappointed with the classic. The nano looked great, unbelievably small and great screen. Worked like a charm with no lag at all. The classic on the other hand gave me just the opposite. It looked great but the performance was awful. Coverflow was laggy, which i expected but i picked up at least 10 different classics and more than half were either frozen in between menus or froze when i tried using them. I guess im even more happy than i was that the touch is using flash rather than HDD.
