Looking for an Apple iPod that has tons of space? The iPod Classic has up to 160GB of storage space; this means your iPod Classic can hold up to 40,000 songs, 200 hours of streaming video, 25,000 photos, or a combination of data that falls within the iPods 160GB’s of storage capacity. The iPod Classic also has up to 36 hours of continuous battery life, so you won’t have any problem getting a head start on those 40,000 songs.
The iPod Classic has a really cool feature called the “Genius”
Let’s say you’re listing to a song by Creed and you want to listen to other songs that are similar. The Genius feature will locate similar songs in your iPod’s library and create you a whole new playlist. After your new playlist is created, you can listen to your songs right away or you can save them and listen to them at a later time.
Navigating through songs with the iPod Classics click wheel is a breeze. You can browse by album art with cover flow or select songs and videos by playlist, album, artist or genre. You can also click the shuffle mode and mix up your songs a bit.
The brilliant 2.5” display screen will make your videos come to live. The iPod Classic lets you rent movies, buy TV shows, and download podcasts directly to your computer, then you can easily sync them to your iPod Classic, so you can watch them on the go.
If you like games, the iPod Classic comes with three games that are already pre loaded for you – Vortex, iQuiz and Klondike. There are other games that can be purchased such as Cake Mania and all games are designed with a special iPod interface.
iPod Classic uses iTunes to sync your photos you have in iPhoto on a Mac. You can also watch photo slideshows with music and transitions on your iPod Classic, or you can connect and` play them on a TV using an Apple component or composite AV cable.
First Generation iPod Classic
The first generation iPod Classic audio player was introduced to Mac users on October 23rd 2001. It first offered 5GB of storage space, and then later increased to 10GB. The total battery life for the iPod Classic is 10 hours. It uses a mechanical scroll wheel and a fire wire for transferring data. An optional USB fire wire is available for transferring data if needed. The 1st Generation iPod Classic model #s: M8513, M8541 or M8697 are getting harder and hard to come across due to the collectability and can be seen on eBay selling for as much as $300 to $350 If you have one of these iPod Classics, we suggest you hold on to it. We expect it to continue to increase in value as time goes on.
Second Generation iPod Classic
The 2nd Generation iPod Classic was introduced July 17th 2002. It supported 10 and 20GB’s of storage space, a new touch sensitive wheel unlike the first generation that moved on ball bearings. This iPod has 10 hours of battery life as does the 1st Generation Classic and uses the same basic monochrome screen. It also uses a fire wire to sync your music and transfer files. The 2nd Generation iPod Classic really saw its advancement with the ability to access windows through a site called MusicMatch. The only thing it lacks is the head phone port that came with the 1st Generation iPod Classic.
Third Generation iPod Classic
On April 28th 2003 Apple launched the third generation iPod. The 3rd Generation iPod got itself a complete face lift. Its thinner new look and all touch interface made a huge splash with music lovers around the world. The 3rd gen iPod Classic also got a boost with its 10, 15, 20, 30, and 40GB’s of storage space. MusicMatch support was later dropped with the introduction of iTunes 4.1 for windows. The battery life was decreased from 10 hours to 8 hours but that is very typical of a smart company that’s trying to save money as they advance their product in other ways.
Forth Generation iPod Classic
The 4th Generation iPod Classic introduced two models for 2004. The first 4th Generation iPod Classic was launched on July 19th 2004. It offered 20 and 40GB’s of memory with 12 hours of battery life. It adopted the click wheel from the iPod Mini that was introduced Jan 6th 2004.
Almost 8 months later Apple made some additional advancements to the forth generation iPod by giving it 20, 40 and 60GB’s of picture viewing capability and on June 28th the iPod Classic got its first color display in either 20 or 60GB’s The battery life was then increased to 15 hours of audio and up to 5 hours of slide shows.
Fifth Generation iPod Classic
The 5th Generation iPod Classic was released on October 12th 2005. It offered 30GB of memory with 14 hours of battery life, 3 hours of slide show and 2 hours of video. Apple also released a 60GB iPod Classic with 20 hours of battery life, 4 hours of slide show and 3 hours of video. The fifth generation iPod Classic underwent a redesign on September 12th 2006 with yet a smaller case, a larger screen and video playback. This model iPod Classic came available in a 30GB and 80GB. The 30GB came available in white, black, black/red and the U2 edition.

The sixth generation iPod Classic was launched on September 5th 2007. It came with a new and improved interface and a new anodized aluminum front plate. It came available in both an 80GB and 160GB hard drive-based music player. The 80GB iPod Classic had 30 hours of battery life and 5 hours of video. The 160GB iPod Classic has an incredible 40 hours of battery life and 7 hours of video. The first revision came on September 9th 2008. The iPod Classic decreased it’s music player capacity slightly to 120GB but it added a fantastic feature called Genius. Genius has the ability to grab songs from your library and build you a custom playlist with songs that are all similar. This model can be ordered in black and white, has 36 hours of audio battery life and 6 hours of video. The second revision came exactly one year later on September 9th 2009.
