The Apple iPod Classic is a piece of technology that will go down in history as best in class. There’s no PC/Mac rivalry here, those are just the facts, and I still use mine on long journeys to this day. But even MP3 royalty grows old, and the iPod’s spinning platter HDD is certainly showing its age in an era of solid state. But what if you could swap it out for something a little faster?

The iPod Classic was discontinued way back in 2014, and I’d take a guess and say most still alive and kicking are quite a bit older than that, too. That’s quite a long time for a HDD to be operating for, and it would usually be a death sentence for most batteries, too (somehow my iPod, despite a multi-year sabbatical from operation, still has a multi-day battery).
