I see by the $ link that it is actually a Digital8 that you are looking at. That is very comparable to the miniDV in terms of quality. The advantage of the Digi8 is that you can play analog Hi-8 (your old tapes) through them. Without being computer savvy and without a library of existing 8mm tapes, there is not much difference between them, although i'd still go with the MiniDV in case a computer ever comes into the scene.
