Riak Development Environments

At my current job I've had the luxury of 4 dell poweredge servers (CentOS,
128GB, 1-2TB disk, 16-core).

However, I've been seriously considering either buying some old 1Us and
building my own rack in the basement OR 3 used mac mini's from eBay (I'm
single so I can do stuff like this).  The nice thing about mini's is they
travel...plus they're so darn cute.  The nice thing about an actual rack is
it is (probably?) closer to real production deployments.

I'm also tempted to use older hardware just b/c if you can make it more
efficient there then the shinier stuff _should_ automatically get a boost.
 Although I supposed stuff like NUMA vs. SMP could bite you?  I'm curious to
hear what others think.

Mark, are you allowed to share any statistics related to the setups of
actual production users?
