About stacking: Just because a platform is capable of stacking for example eight switches, that doesn't mean you should do that. If you need man ports, a modular platform like the Catalysr 4500 or 6800 could be the better solution.

As Karsten notes, that information should be noted somewhere on the device's datasheet.

However, later 2960 models (-S, -X, -XR) can be stacked as can the 3750, 3650 and 3850 series switches.  I think all the forgoing (currently) support stacks up to nine units.  Also the 4500-X can form a VSS pair (basically sort of stack of two).
