1-My first argument was concerning the budget (one 4500 instead of four or five 3750 in stack mode) ---- Here i think 4 or 5 stacked 3750 is cheap than one 4500
This is not necessarily true. Usually when you start stacking more then 3 or 4 3750s together, the price is higher then one 4500 redundant chassis
2- My second argument was about harware redundancing that i don't have with one 4500 and that i have with stack mode ----Here i have more hardware redundancing with 3750
If you get a 4500 with dual power supplies and dual sups, it provides hardware redundency
3- The bug that we notice today in 2960 and 3750 and not in 4500
All IOS versions have bugs regardless of which device you are using thema for. some have more and some have less. Cisco usually remedy bug issues with both 3750 and 4500 pretty quickly. (They are both popular devices)
4- Simple to manage a 4500 compare to 3750 stack design
True, and you don't have to worry about multiple license for multiple switches. Even with dual sups for the 4500, you only need ONE license versus you need to buy a license for each 3750. (Big cost difference)
5- I was looking also for the one with best backplane ----Here i didn't have any infos concerning the best backplane between 4 or 5 stack 3750 and a 4500.
The newer sups for the 4500 have larger backplanes
6- I'm also looking for power redundancing ---- i think both give it.
True, the new 3750X series can have 2 PSU per chassis
Overall, managing one device with redundant components and one IOS is easier then multiple devices.
