Question regarding a lab

So I was going through ebay to get myself some stuff to set up a lab.

on the routers I found 3 2811 with wic1t modules and ios 15.1 for 100£ that i think it a pretty good deal.

on the switches now i can get the 3550 for 75£ but they dont support the ios 15 on the other hamd the guy offered me the 2960-24TT-L but they only support layer 2 switching if I am right.

now what would be the best option for me IOS version vs the l3 switching or get two of both?

thanks in advance!

    it depends on what you plan on doing with your lab?

    what you need are 2 switches for the ccna and you need 2 layer 3 switches for the ccnp.

    so get a 3560, a "ts" model, and a 2960. you have everything you need for a ccna lab. And, they can be used in a ccnp lab after that.
