Good for ESXi home Lab
This review is from: Lenovo ThinkServer TS130 Tower Server System Intel Xeon E3-1245V2 3.4GHz 4C/8T 4GB No Hard Drive 110571U
Pros: This is a great server for your VMware ESXi home lab. The machine is virtually silent, has a fast Intel CPU, supports upto 32G RAM, comes with DVD ROM. Ye I know it says ESXi is not supported but it runs find with a couple of caveats: 1. The onboard NIC is not recognized by ESXi 5.1 so you will need to purchase a couple of NIC cards (single or dual). The onbaord NIC can still be used for the Intel IPMI 2.0/Out-of-Band-Managment functionality.
Cons: Would nice if it booted directly from the hard drive for ESXi 5.1but that is not a deal breaker. it only has room for two hard drives. You need to buy some other Intel NIc cards if you want to run VMware ESXi 5.1 since the onboard NIC is not supported.
