Poked around these forums to read more. Seems like a decent switch that has a good CLI running EOS.

This "32" is an x86 dual core processor (interesting). There are other models with "32S" which is a quad core. I wonder why that would matter?

Are these not 100% ACL line-rate switches like the Brocade? Can't find an answer on these forums (didn't look at data sheet yet). Maybe that's why there are dual core and quad core versions, for CPU offloading?
