    The last ipod classic had a 160gb version. Why don't they have an option for 160gb and 240gb because I know it's possible for them to make a 240gb one:ugh:

    demand for small disk-based drives has been tapering off, so apple's probably not going to bother going beyond 160 for awhile.

    i honestly can't imagine why someone would want > 64gb on a portable music player but to each their own.

    :werd: I've got my entire library on my 80GB ipod classic and it's only 5.92 GB. I wouldn't likely ever need anything beyond a 16GB touch to keep me happy.

    because that would make them heavier and it wouldn't be cost effective for Apple.

    :werd: my 8gb nano is more than sufficient for my 90gb library.

    I like having all my music on my mp3 player because I listen to what I like and I like what I listen to. I don't want to have to choose what to put on my ipod

    The 240GB drives are slightly thicker then then 160GB drives which would mean they would have to redesign the iPod and make it bigger. Additionally, the 240GB drives have a higher failure rate that they may not be cool with using due to warranty issues.

    I have a 60 gig 5th gen and it's a little over half full. I put a lot of dance vinyl on it and I have this OCD thing about adding full albums instead of only the tracks I like. :dunno:

    why invest the money when they keep driving down the price of solid state memory? if the next update is 128GB solid state, why keep toying with hard drives?

    :werd: for portable devices like this, SSD technology makes the most sense for MANY reasons.

    so is it pretty much pointless to invest in a 160gb classic if it is a dying technolgoy bro, should i just get a 64gb touch even though i already have 29gb of music and ccould prolly fill it up in like 2 years

    I wouldn't look at an ipod as an "investment" -- it's just like any other gadget, two years from now there will be something drastically better than any current ipod and by then, you'll want a new one anyway most likely. Buy the cheapest unit that you'll be able to stay happy with and not run out of space on for two years, then replace it.

    Just a thought.

    The old 80/160 GB Classics were of two different thicknesses. The 80GB hard drive has one platter, the 160 has two, making it thicker. They killed the 2-platter form factor and replaced the 80GB with the current 120GB Classic, which is a single platter design with higher density. It was a simple decision to cut down on manufacturing costs and simplify the device because disk-based iPods are a dying breed.

    The density of the drive recently increased again, hence the new 160GB Classic with a single platter.

    I love my 120GB Classic. All of my music + Genius playlists = win, especially when it's mounted in my car.

    my 30GB iPod Photo is plenty enough for my 60GB+ library. 4GB Shuffle holds more than enough music for my workouts, and the iPhone 3G 16GB provides unlimited music with AOL radio, Pandora, and iHeart.

    Its not consumption if you sell your old one for a few bucks to someone who can't afford the latest and greatest.

    Don't like that? Go hug a tree :gtfo:
