    Hey all,

    I just posted up in the introduction area about looking to get back into IT after 6/7 years. I used to run a main rig (looks like GFX card is dead?) and a cheap server (CPU fan was dangling off the CPU) Both machines are 8 - 10 years old when 8GB ram was Valhalla! I have an iiyama 19inch monitor which still works :).

    I want to start down the new MCSE route and so will need to build some VM labs but I don't know what a modern machine for VM labing using windows 10 and the newest version of server should look like? Any pointers? Ive always built my own machines. I stopped gaming along time ago but wouldn't mind it under the consideration as well.

    I have a mac book air but I think all it can handle is a cheese toastie.
