Room to grow

on 7/12/2011

I got this new 160GB because my old 80GB had been full for a while. I wanted a 160GB so bad that a few months ago I almost broke down and got the discontinued 160GB from '07 at $500. glad I waited for Apple to release the 160GB again. I like everything about the Classic. the cover flow is really nice, not just working with album covers but photos and movies too. I love how it also shows the number of songs in library or playlist just by highlighting and not selecting. It's crazy that this is twice the hard drive space but is like 1/3 less in actual size. Guess I'll hold on to this till they come out with a 320GB

Product Overview

Space availabe. And lots of it.

With 160GB, you can carry your entire media library with you everywhere.

Meet a musical Genius.
Say you’re listening to a song you really like and want to hear other tracks that go great with it. With a few clicks, the Genius feature finds the songs in your library that go great together and makes a Genius playlist for you. You can listen to the playlist right away, save it for later, or even refresh it and give it another go. Count on Genius to create a mix you wouldn’t have thought of yourself.

Hold everything.
iPod classic gives you 160GB of storage capacity, good for up to 40,000 songs, 200 hours of video, 25,000 photos, or any combination. And you get up to 36 hours of battery life, so you can keep on rocking for a long, long time.

Click to enjoy.
Finding exactly what you want to watch or listen to is easy. Use the Click Wheel to browse by album art with Cover Flow or navigate your songs and videos by playlist, artist, album, genre, and more. You can also search for specific titles and artists. Want to mix things up? Click Shuffle Songs for a different experience every time.

Leave no tune behind.
With 160GB of space, iPod classic means you can always have your entire music and movie library with you. Carry it from the living room to a party in the backyard. Or take it on a cross-country road trip and never listen to the same song twice.

Watch movies and TV shows.
The vivid 2.5-inch display makes video come alive. Purchase or rent movies, buy TV shows, and download video podcasts from the iTunes Store, then sync them to your iPod classic to watch anywhere, anytime.

Play iPod games.
Put hours of fun at your fingertips. iPod classic comes with three games — Vortex, iQuiz, and Klondike — and you can purchase games such as Cake Mania from the iTunes Store. All iPod games are designed specifically for the iPod interface.

Share your photos.
iPod classic uses iTunes to sync the photos you have in iPhoto on a Mac. You can view photo slideshows complete with music and transitions on iPod classic, or play them on a TV using an optional Apple component or composite AV cable.
