Upgrading your iPod Nano to 200 GB

[Media: Article]

When your very compact iPod Nano just doesn't have enough harddrive space on it, what's the first thing you do? Slap a 200 GB harddrive onto it, that's what! Actually, the entire process is much more complicated than that, but the benefits are definitely worth it.

Now you have 200gb of storage space, fill it up with songs! We found in our benchmarking results that the addition of the ATA hard drive adversely affected battery life. However, we believe that this is a small price to pay for an over 50x increase in storage capacity. Using Apple's own bitrate calculations, we can now store over 150,000 minutes of music! You'll never listen to the same song twice. This is such a great advantage over the original model that we urge all iPod Nano owners to upgrade immediately.

Of course the battery life will drop due to the increase in harddrive space, but that's not much to worry about right?
