Who else is waiting, money in hand, for the new March 2019 iPad low-cost option?

I am. Just switched from a MBP to a Mac mini and intending to use an iPad for portability. Going to buy one for the gf too so we can share photos etc and get work done together in the same way.

I'd be happy to have the same design and price with internal improvements like the XR processor and 3GB RAM. At least then I could buy a keyboard case the same day!

I would expect it to have the same specs as iPhone 8. But if we're lucky, we'll get 3GB. Given how DRAM pricing is falling off a cliff, I think 3GB is very possible.

The 6th gen got the 7 plus ram specs as the non plus variant only had 1 go so hopefully the 7th gen specs will be more based off the 8 plus

iPhone 7 Plus has 3GB of RAM. The iPad (6th gen) has 2GB of RAM.

I’m definitely going to get the new iPad (either Mini or Regular, haven’t decided). I’m hoping for A12 with 3 GB RAM, but I’d settle for A11 (with 3 GB RAM hopefully). All I know is that I’m getting one ASAP.
