I’m planning to build a home lab where I can work with the new vSphere 7 and all the new features of it. I’m in the process of choosing the server OR servers. My dilemma is if it’s better to buy a more powerful system or two systems older and less powerful with the same money.
To be more specific:
Option 1: Lenovo Thinkstation P500 Intel Xeon Xeon e5-2650v3 (10-core).
Option 2: Lenovo Thinkstation S30 Intel Xeon e5-1600 OR e3-1600 (or similar).
In both cases, the cost will be no more than ~450-500€.
The most important is the compatibility with vSphere 7 edition.
Thank you in advance!
