iPad mini I lost my iPad mini 4. Should I buy a new one or wait for a possible iPad mini 5?

I have looked everywhere and cannot find it. Target has it on sale right now for $299, but that seems a lot to pay for that old of a processor. I would wait, but I feel like we have heard rumors about another mini for the past few years just to be disappointed. Is there anything reliable or concrete? If not, I am just going to bite the bullet and get another one.

Buy a new one, don't buy a new one, wait until end of March, don't wait until end of March. Up to you!

I would suggest to wait and see if a new one drops in in during the March event. Else I would go for the $329 ipad.

Would not spend $299 on a 4 year old machine no matter how convenient it is...
