I had made a post about the 80GB iPod, how much I loved it, and how great it was, and now suddenly it’s deleted. Ah well, c’est la vie, no?
Anyways, I don’t remember everything that was there, but suffice it to say that the iPod is amazing. You can store around 20,000 songs, over a hundred videos, TV shows, and the new iPods even have games in brilliant color.
Not only that, but the new 80GB iPod has a better battery life with up to 20 hours of music playback and 6.5 hours of video playback which is GREAT for plane rides without having to pull out the laptop. If you run out of battery, you can plug the iPod into your laptop via USB and leech battery power from it. Perfection!
The new iPod also has clarity enhancements. Videos can be larger and squeezed onto the iPod’s screen for great playback on a TV. The brightness has also been adjusted, which allows a beautiful retina-burning display of video.
Take a look at the old vs. new pics below:
While the actual video watching is not THAT bright, it is what my camera picked up, and this camera was using NO flash. A visual feast, the likes of which will make you want to stare at the sun to cool your eyes off after a movie.
The best part is that Apple lowered their prices at the same time. The new 80GB iPod is only $350.00, whereas the old 60GB one was $400. You can’t beat the price for this much space and such great features.
