With 120GB of capacity, the Apple iPod classic (Black) is perfect for transporting up to 30,000 songs, 150 hours of video, 25,000 photos, or a combination of all three. A quick-charging lithium ion battery guarantees up to 36 hours of music play time, or 6 hours of video playtime.

Enclosed in a sleek, black anodized aluminum and polished stainless steel housing, the iPod classic incorporates a new Genius Feature, which analyzes your current song selection and creates a new playlist composed of similar selections found within your music library. By running your finger around the iPod classic's Click Wheel you can also call up songs and videos by artist, album, playlist, genre, or title or shake things with the Shuffle feature, with a simple click of the wheel.

Music aside, you can also download music videos, games (Vortex, iQuiz, and Klondike are included), podcasts, movies, and your favorite TV shows from the iTunes Store and view them on the iPod classic's bright 2.5", 320 x 240 dpi color display.

For sharing your photos, the iPod classic uses iTunes (Mac) or Adobe's Photoshop Elements or Album (PC) to sync photos for slideshow viewing complete with music and transitions. Play your slideshows on your TV using the optional composite AV cable or an optional Apple component. The classic also comes pre-loaded with a calendar and contact display.
