Should I still get an N40L?

Just wanted to put this out there... Would appreciate some advice.

 

With the Gen 9 practically around the corner, the company I work for is looking into liquidating some 40 N40L Microservers to employees for about $100 apiece (equivalent to our local currency). They're practiclly brand new, old stock, and was told that they no longer have HP warranty.

 

I personally think it's a good deal but I'm not sure if I should invest in one (or two). I have half a mind to set it up as a glorified NAS or Hyper-V/VMWare practice lab, but only if the CPU is still up for it, as I believe they're non-replaceable.

 

Thanks!

Thanks. I'll probably get a couple and unload the other one online.

 

It would've been my pleasure to hook you up. But shipping it from Asia would most likely make it more expensive.

 

If I crank up the memory to 8 or 16 GB, will I be ever to run VMs for lab testing and stuff? Thinking of ramping up on SCCM, SCOM, etc.

Yes, you can run VMs, but I wouldn't be doing anything heavy with them, even with more RAM. However, I think these are perfect router/UTM boxes, and $100, it's a no-brainer IMHO.
