I would think the price of the 160GB unit is much cheaper than paying for all those smaller capacity units too. The 160 iPod Classic is $250. Best Buy sells an 8GB clip for $60. I don't know. Maybe I'm missing something but that just doesn't make sense to me to have multiples instead of one bigger capacity device.
I prefer several tiny devices to one large device. That way I can stash them about - home, carry, car, work - and never be without one. 4 x $250 = $1,000 vs 4 x $30 = $120. Besides, a Clip fits easily in the coin pocket of my jeans. Not so with the iPod classic.
Additionally, the Clips offer a large feature set - MP3, WMA, Audible, Ogg, FLAC, AAC (Zip only), FM radio, voice & FM recorders, stopwatch (Zip only), mSD card slot.
