    Maybe this has already been posted, but I didn't see anything. Toshiba now has 220GB 1.8" hard drives coming out, which could be used in a silent update to the aging iPod Classic (as reported by MacRumors). Would you buy one? :apple:

    No. I don't listen 10000 songs on the go. No.

    iPod Classic is dead and apple should move on to something else like adding super retina display on my iphone.

    Probably, my 160GB classic is nearly full so the extra storage would be useful.

    I would love a huge iPod. The current classic has such a terrible interface with coverflow that I had to return mine. I apple would let you turn off coverflow and split screen with covers flashing by I'd buy another especially if it had a bigger drive.

    I'd rather stream my music.

    P.S. How do you manage 1TB of music? My collection pales in comparison. :eek:

    Say it ain't so!

    Personally I love the iPod classic design, and for music-only uses prefer it to the iOS interface, I just find it easier to use, especially for LARGE volumes of music.

    I still own a 80gb iPod classic and use it every day. I'd like a larger capacity one but I'm not sure if I'll ever actually buy one since it isn't really necessary and there's always other things I'd rather spend the money on (unless my current one breaks, in which case I'd buy a newer, higher capacity one without even considering any other type of iPod).

    I wonder, maybe the iPod Classic will be worth something someday? Hmm. ;)

    well its not just about songs but you can use it as an external hard drive too, no?
    so you get 1machine for mp3, videos (not that handy though) AND a lot of storage.

    but can you use the classic as a hard drive or is it sync-only like the touch and iphone? that must soon change, seriously -.- we have so many gigabytes going wasted because of apple's restrictions...

    Day one

    I'll buy a 220gb Classic the day it hits the street. I use my 120 daily for music. A 220 still won't hold all of my music but it will hold everything I might want to hear on any given day. I like the "no look" function of the click wheel. Mine spends 90% of it's time in the glove compartment of my car anyway. When I do dock it or use earphones I really like the playlist options. Right now a Touch just doesn't fit my needs for size or function.

    The Classic i would like in a 220GB form, because it's the kind of "jukebox" iPod that you can keep in your glovebox, plugged into a stereo at home, or anywhere, and just have a constant stream of music.
    I get tired of the music on my 32GB iPhone, but never on my 120GB classic.
    Although, I have 700MB free, so it would be nice to get a higher capacity model.

    I have songs on my iPhone--maybe 5GB or so but never listen to them much--I listen to Pandora or Rhapsody 90 percent of the time--so the iPod classic is not for me--even with a terabyte. :D

    Give it wifi / airplay connection and definitely. ipod touch can't remotely store all the media I want to stream and I don't like having to have a computer awake all the time to get media onto apple tv. If apple tv could see airport extreme network drives it wouldn't matter, but it can't, so a wifi high capacity ipod is the next best option.

    true, the ipod classic with wifi , or even better minidisplayport (we know apple doesnt like directly hdmi cables), would be awsome.
    a 220gb music/video player that can stream to apple tv and/or connect to a tv to play movies etc! awsome!

    Excellent idea. I'd love to stream my music when I drive to and from work. Nothing better in the world than giving lots of money to the phone company.

    So why on earth did you start this thread when you are not interested in the iPod Classic in the first place? Is it a threat to your world view or what?

    No, but I like making polls/ seeing what people want/ would they buy this or that. It's interesting to me (the results and so-forth). That's all. And no (in case you were wondering), I don't work for Apple (at least not yet :D).

    Sure.. but I did'nt wait I bought a 160gb one over the weekend. I have an Kenwood BT900 Media Reciever in my Car and I wanted a high capacity unit and the touches max out at 64, I did'nt want to wait to see if Apple will use the new Toshiba. If they do I'll pick up the larger capacity down the road

    The future is streaming and SSD. I would say screw HDD. They are way more risky to carry around .

    I rather have retina display on iPod classic and all of the portable apple devices. classic should remain Classic.

    Nah, the 160 is more than I need. I don't think they will do much more with the ipod line as those days are over, apple moved on to other things. If they did do a high capacity ipod they would probably sell less than 5% of them. Folks just don't really buy them anymore.
