So I'm kicking myself because I was going to buy a back up iPod Classic 160GB for my five year old model. I use it to carry my entire music library with me when I travel and for those intercontinental plane rides. Wouldn't you know it I held off until it is too late. Despite my best attempt to find them in stock after the discontinuation announcement, no luck.

So I bit the bullet and bought one listed as "new" on ebay. The packaging seemed a bit strange as it was not a standard Apple box but the serial number checked out as authentic when I plugged it into the Apple Support website.

But I'm wondering, is this the real deal? If it is not, it seems to be a high quality knock off!

TIA

There's not much we can do without pictures or more information... you'll find out soon enough.

Well, it's not likley fake. It's in an Apple service box. The same one you would get if you got a replacement at the Genius bar
