The iPod classic is available in up to a 160GB, that's a heck of a lot of space for music and video, in fact its probably bigger than most laptop HDDs of current users.Just like the iPod nano, the iPod classic sports the new enhanced interface, which promises a whole new way to browse and view music and video. Its two column format allows you to scroll through your library on the left side while getting a preview on the right.

Cover Flow is now a standard among all iPods with screens. Use the Click Wheel to flip through album covers. Now you'll have to be more anal about makings sure all your music has album art and they all look nice and even. Trust me, I've been there, spending hours tweaking my album art so they look great on my iPhone.The 80GB which can store up to 20,000 songs, up to 25,000 photos, or up to 100 hours of video is priced at $249, while the humungous 160GB model is priced at $349 and can store a whopping 40,000 songs, 25,000 photos, or 200 hours of video. Now that's a whole lot in your pocket.Battery life is an amazing 40 hours of audio and 7 hours of video.The same 3 games, iQuiz, Klondike and Vortex now come free with the iPod classic as well. Think you've heard it all, hold you breath and skip to the story above. The best is yet to come.
