I am checking into various rack rental vendors to work on CCIE lab. Some have a combo of either two 3550s and two 3650s while another may have two 3560s and two 3750s. Can anybody tell me if there is going to be any difference when it comes to working on the lab scenarios.?

Should be very little differences function wise , 3560 and 3750 are basically newer versions of the 3550.

it's my understanding that the QoS is different between the 3550 and 3560. i've also heard taht the 3750 is basically a stackable 3560.

in either case, since the R/S lab covers the 3550/3560, why chance it. go with a rack rental place taht has both of those.

thanks to you both. I was also thinking the same thing as to why chance it. There was a difference in pricing. The 3550/3650 vendor is a few $$$ more than the vendor using 3560/3750. Hence the reason for considering the later one.
