I know the 2019 mini is a much more capable and advanced device than the 2018 iPad. However, I can get the iPad for $270 where was the mini will cost me $395. I'm really torn whether the mini is worth the extra $125. I know all the spec differences, the main one being the A12 vs A10. Also, the RAM and storage space are bigger for the mini. This will mostly be used as a streaming media consumption device so the internal storage difference probably won't be a big deal. The mini form factor is preferred, but I'm not sure if it's "$125 more preferred". As for games, I'm sure my wife will be letting my elementary school kids play simple games on it occasionally. I guess my main concern is how slow the A10 and 2GB will be compared to the A12 and 3GB about 2.5 to 3 years down the line for daily tasks as I'm expecting it to last at least that long. Can you guys help me decide which one to get?
