    I'd be really disappointed if they discontinued the iPod Classic. It's the only iPod that can hold my entire music library. I can't be the only one who needs or wants a dedicated music player. People keep saying I can just store music in the cloud but I don't want to be at the mercy of an internet or cell phone connection to listen to my own music. The whole point of a music player is to be able to listen to my music anywhere, any time.

    I will definitely buy at least one extra Classic if they stop making them.

    True, but with the current shuffle UI, at least I can feel the buttons. Touchscreen, on a bike at least, is just a recipe for disaster. Like I said, I'll invest in 2 or 3 more shortly and leave them NIB until I need them

    I just (last evening) purchased four Shuffles. I had to exchange one of them this morning because it was DOA (bad battery). If you buy some Shuffles to keep for later on, be sure to check them first to see if they'll charge up. Here in the Fort Worth area they're already in short supply. I had to call around to several Best Buy stores to find them in stock and with the right color.

    I still have my 30 GB 5th gen iPod video. I have roughly 2k songs...and that keeps growing every year...so eventually...I'm going to have to find a different way for music if Apple no longer supports large music/media libraries through physical storage. (Though there is iCloud...)

     iPhone 6 64GB - iOS 9.3

     MacBook unibody/white late 2009 - OS X El Capitan 10.11.4

    So I'm in need of a new iPod Classic. How soon should I run out and get one?

    As fast as you would run after a free NY Yankee's world series ticket.

    Seriously, as I stated above the Shuffles are in short supply here in the Fort Worth area. Of course they're the most inexpensive of all the iPod line. Don't know about the Classic since they cost much more.

    Hate is a strong word but a lot of people find them very useful
    as I and as stated guess I will be getting a classic before they are gone if Apple makes the decision to cancel.

    They're really useful for some of us. I have several with different playlists for going to the gym. Under fifty bucks for something that can be clipped to my shirt, play **** near a days worth of music, weighs less than a few quarters, and navigated without looking at it...

    Makes me with that I had bought more of them when Amazon had them on their ridiculous sale a few months ago. At $37 I should have gotten a half dozen of them just in case.

    I really like my shuffle, it can get wet, be dropped and ran over with a car and still work. I think that they need to keep them in production.

    iPod Classics are unreliable as sin. HDDs in a portable music system ain't exactly the best combination.

    Shuffles are low capacity and offer poor control of playback. New Nano's do the same thing but better.

    I have several of the newer Nano iPods and dislike them. The display is too small for a touch screen device for one thing, and the battery has a short life before it needs to be recharged. I also have a Nano from the previous generation which in my opinion is much superior.

    Meh @ the new Nano hate. I love mine:





    Watch, music, pedometer, podcasts... come on guys, more love for the lil' guy!

    As for the classics going out, that's bad news IMO. I'll probably buy one and keep a few extra 1.8" hard drives handy and then ROCKbox it. RIP HDD based Mp3 players.
