I just wanted to start this thread to get your ideas on building a new lab with Nutanix CE using the recently announced Mac Minis. They support 6-core CPUs and up to 64GB RAM. It only comes with a single PCIe SSD up to 2TBs in size though. Not two.
Any thoughts?

My thoughts is that I would probably spend my money on different hardware and get more performance for my money 😛

CE doesn't support NVMe SSDs and UEFI boot.

I agree with you @Linux and I'm also all for more value for my money :)
However, the cost of these Macs is not far from a well loaded Intel NUC which is one of the most popular small form-factors for CE out there and hence my thought of bringing it up here. Thanks again!
