Some people have expressed an interest in seeing the exact parts list for the HomeLab in < 100Watts. Well, here it is and I’ve included a link to where you can get it (no affiliation or kickbacks, just a link of convenience). NOTE: Prices vary wildly and prices paid were correct at time of my build for the presentation.
This is the full kit list. Get this and your away. Add in your VMWare free trials and the lab is complete!
