With 160 gigabytes of storage, you can carry your entire media library with you everywhere. The Apple iPod classic can hold up to 40,000 songs, 200 hours of video, or 25,000 photos—that's more than enough room for a day's (or a lifetime's) worth of entertainment. Plus, you get up to 36 hours of battery life so you can keep on rocking for a long, long time.

With 160 gigabytes of space, the iPod classic means you can always have your entire music and movie library as well as photo album with you. Carry it from the living room to a backyard party or take it on a cross-country road trip and never listen to the same song twice.

Music Listening Made EasySay you're listening to a song you really like and want to hear other tracks that go great with it. The Genius feature finds 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 that you wouldn't have thought of yourself.

Finding exactly what you want to watch or listen to is easy with Apple's state-of-the-art MP3 player. Use the iPod classic's 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.

The Apple iPod's vivid 2.5" 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 Apple iPod classic to watch anywhere, anytime.

The Apple iPod classic gives you hours of fun at your fingertips. The 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.

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

Classic beauty:
Available in quintessential silver or striking black, the Apple iPod classic catches your eye with its sleek, all-metal enclosure composed of anodized aluminum and polished stainless steel. It's been designed with special features to reduce environmental impact, such as arsenic-free display glass, a mercury-free LED-backlit display, plus its highly recyclable stainless steel enclosure.

Thank you Apple & Guitar Center!!!!!

By Kyle Cox

from California

It's quite rare for a company to come out with a new product that contains the same great things you loved about the first version, only upgrading/improving/changing the one thing you were hoping to be upgraded/improved/changed. That's what Apple did with the iPod Classic 160gb. Same exact great & simple product with almost 6 times the amount of space as my 32gb iPod that I purchased ten years ago. My old ipod still works like a champ, but I simply ran out of space on it and needed more. Also, the price is very good for this product. I spent close to $400 on my old ipod ten years ago, so thank you Apple & Guitar Center for offering much more for much less! Lastly, ordering online through Guitar Center is the easiest online store to order from. Not only is it simple to navigate, but my order arrived earlier than it was supposed to. After many years of being a customer of Guitar Center, I am very happy and impressed that they are able to show the same high level of service online as they do in their stores. Hope this helps!

This Ipod is very simple to use and great if you have tons of music like I do. if you want games and less storage go for the Itouch, but if you want to hold your entire music library check this out.

Great Ipod!

By adam

from Rockville, MD

This Ipod is amazing, the 160GB makes it like a computer. I have more room on this thing then im probably ever going to need. The screen is big enough so that movies and music videos are still great to watch.
