Apple iPod Classic

Now, one size really does fit all… As long as you don’t mind it having a hard drive, and don’t need wifi connectivity or a large screen for video and games.

The iPod Classic may be Apple’s least innovative currently available iPod… except for maybe the shuffle, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t buy it.

This iPod is essentially the same as the previous Generation iPod Classic.The only difference is that it comes standard in only one size, the 120GB. This size is really more than enough. No one could possibly buy that much music. As apple states, the device holds 30,000 songs. To actually buy that would cost as much as $30,000. So only the ultra rich or people with massive illegally downloaded music and video libraries will actually need the full 120GB.

Hardware -

This iPod is about as standard as you can get. It is aluminum, 4.1 inches tall, 2.4 inches wide, and .41 inches deep. It has a 2.5 inch diagonal screen that displays 320×240 pixels.

It is rated at an audio playback time of 36 hours (users of previous iPods will note that this is several times better) and a video playback time of 6 hours.

Realistically this iPod is about as exciting as the colors it comes in, silver and black. Still it is Apple’s media playing workhorse and at $250 it’s a great value for money.
