Buy If You Want an Affordable iPad
If you want a newer iPad model, but don't want to shell out for Apple's iPad Pro line, think about buying the iPad Mini 5.
Apple's 2018 iPad Pros require a sizable investment. The 64 GB 11-inch iPad Pro costs $800. That's double the price of the $399 iPad mini 5.
For $399 you get a brand new iPad mini 5 with a solid list of specs that will allow you to hold onto the tablet for years to come.
It doesn't have as much horsepower as the iPad Pro line but it'll be good enough for people looking to play games, watch content, and get a little work done on the go.
You also pay more for cellular data on an iPad Pro. It costs $150 to add cellular data to an iPad Pro, but it only costs $130 to add it to the Mini.
If you want a new, powerful tablet, but don't want to cut a huge check, think about going with the iPad mini 5.
