ive been trying to justifying buying a 160gb ipod classic

would it be possible to use it as a reliable external drive as well as a media player (i know it really is, but i mean using it DAILY and dedicated to backing up data etc)

further than that, would it be possible to partition the pod to be say 100gb external drive exclusively and 60gb media player exclusively?

further than THAT, would it be possible to use it as an external drive for time machine in leopard? (when it finally comes)

has anybody had any other justifying ideas for a 160gb ipod classic?

I WANT ONE!
