I am finally upgrading from my iPad 2. I like the small form factor of the mini and Best buy has the mini 4 for $299.99 right now, but I also am intrigued by the 9.7 Pro for $599.99. We only use iPads for browsing, reading, watching videos, recording videos, using iMovie to edit them, and some various gaming. No intense usage. I want something that will last 3 or so years. We will most likely use in the house and not take it with us as we all have iPhones and don't travel a lot. Im a bit concerned both the iPad mini 4 and this new pro has the same 2gb of ram. Shouldn't a "pro" issue have more ram than the mini 4? Knowing our usage though we probably won't see any issues. However, the mini 4 at Bestbuy is only $299 vs $599 for the 9.7 Pro. I am not sure if its worth the extra $300. Or if the Air 2 is a better option and will be as future proof as the Pro 9.7 if I want the larger form factor. Part of me feels I should just buy the newest release knowing it will give me the most lifespan. I bought the iPad 2 at launch and its lasted nicely. Your thoughts are appreciated. Thanks very much!
