is the 160 gig thinner then the previous 80 gig?
Here's the question though: do we need new design protective cases or we can get away with the protective cases now used for the 5.5G iPod video?just to let everyone know new 80 gig classic
housing 10.55mm old 30 gig 10.9mm, new 160 gig
housing 13.5mm old 80 gig housing 13.97, so i think
the thickness has only came down .4mm on both models
remember too that the edges are more rounded, so (considereing also the half mm difference) cases might not fit as snugly
I love my little sleve that came with my 5th Gen iPod, it's thin, lightweight and protects the iPod well. If the classic doesn't come with one I am just going to use my old one. I lost it for about 8 months so I know what can happen to the screen and the chrome backing if you leave it unprotected in your pocket, I am not letting the classic get scratched like my 5th Gen did.
