    Now they just need some good cases for them.

    i don't see why you can't use the old cases, at least for the 160 gb, because the 80 gb is almost the same size


    and yeah, i have a black one, i'll post a pic later tonight.

    I've got one for the 60gb...but it doesn't fit it exactly...the ipod is too thin, so i am getting fuzz and trash in the back of the case.

    I thought about getting one. Loading every CD I own on it, and just docking it with me stereo at home, or using it in the car. But I tried one out at the Apple store, and it kinda lagged.

    Not any more than the older HD based iPods, imo. If you don't like lag, go get a nano or iPod touch. :hsughno:

    I have an 80gb that is too small. Looking forward to grabbing a 160gb.

    I gotta be honest, I hate the new design. I like the black & polish aluminum look to the prior models. Should've just made it thinner.

    Yeah I agree, but they just got scratched way too easily. You can tell by the design of the new one that it's not going to be a problem.

    Album art is displayed at a 3/4 view with a slight reflection now. Plus there's now coverflow support.

    It could be that I am used to my nano, and that is why I think there is a lag

    I noticed this in the store also, so it's definately not just you. Now when I got my silver 160 home, it didnt have that lag problem. I'm thinking that since those store models gets played with so muchm they are bound to be screwed up.

    i like the new nanos. the classic ipods are cool, but a little too big for my taste

    they're like the size of a wheat thin. they're so small i think i'd be afraid of losing it somewhere.

    i agree now that i've played with mine more. it actually lags less than my previous 5G 30gig, especially when skipping through songs.

    update on the case issue:

    i got myself some "invisible armor" for my classic, which is basically a thin plastic covering that fits like a snug glove over the front and back. kind of a pain in the ass to put on correctly, but it's nice that it's protected without a big bulky case.

    and i don't have my camera cable with me here in SLC. i'll post a pic when i get home later this week.

    The only lag I see is when I turn off the hold switch.
