Do you have a large music collection that you want to keep with you at all times? Then the iPod Classic is the iPod for you! Available in both black and silver, it looks as good as it sounds.
With a capacity of 160GB, even a very large collection of music is almost guaranteed to fit inside. Starting at £199, the iPod Classic is the direct descendent to the original iPod Apple introduced back in 2001, but with brand new and up-to-date internals. One thing that has remained unchanged is the Click Wheel, making it effortless to pick out a song and start playing it.
Carry up to about 40,000 songs you love anywhere you go in a compact package that also offers around 36 hours of playback. It might not be enough to go through your collection, but for most trips at least you have enough time to locate a power outlet before you are out of juice in the battery.
The iPod Classic is also capable of playing back videos and you will have room for some 200 hours of it if you choose to do so. It might not be in HD quality, but with 200 hours available, perhaps that is a compromise you can make.
There are no apps for the iPod Classic anymore, but the iPod classic does come with three simple games built in; Vortex, iQuiz and Klondike. It has a conventional hard drive inside, making it sensitive to mechanical wear and shocks.
If you do not have a very large music collection you might want to consider the iPod nano, or the iPod Touch.
