    Now that Apple has discontinued their largest iPod model, do you think people will start paying more for them? I'm kinda tempted to sell mine and buy a 32GB iPod Touch.

    Also, don't you dare turn this into a flame war. Yes, I'm talking to you

    Also, I would like to sell my 80GB Classic to get a 32GB Touch as well. Why do we like to waste money?

    Yeah, trade it for a touch. I ditched my nano (that I won for a dollar from a stacker machine) to buy an iPhone. And with the 2.1 firmware it hasn't died yet [​IMG]

    The 160GB model will hold its price for a while, because while it's getting oldish, it's still the only player out there with a 160GB capacity. On the other hand, don't expect a "rarity value" price jump just yet.

    I'd wait until there was a 64GB Model... actually I'm waiting for a 64GB iPhone with a better battery life. I gotta have my iPod and phone in one [​IMG]

    the iTouch is overprice, quite frankly all iPods are over priced... but you pay for it becoming the "one" I mean so many accessories for it now.

    I'm sure that a few people, such as DJs that for some reason love blaring low quality bitrates at their unfortunate clubbers, will miss the 160GB option. However, most people probably do not have the music collections to fill up an iPod classic. I know my 16GB iPhone is plenty big for me as long as I keep my movies off of it.

    Then again, there's some quaint charm about carrying enough pirated music and movies around in your pocket that the RIAA could sue you into poverty and or a lifetime in jail...

    me? (restarts the combo)

    As for me, I'm deciding either the ITouch 2nd gen, or the "3rd" gen Zune.

    If only the Ipod touch had more than just 32 gigs of capacity, it's be an instant winner, but seeing how I have 55 gigs of music and videos, it's not an easy choice.

    Anyways, imo, I don't think it'll actually go any bigger in price........ I just have a feeling.
