Got an offer for cad 10 off just for looking at the listing. The seller has 80 units and maybe open to offers for larger quantities.

The N6005 is quite a bit faster than the J5005 in some of the other Dell TCs, but it doesn't seem like there's as much expandability in this model/chassis vs the one that J5005 usually comes in:
Unless getting 2.5gbe or pci-e slot (since its also going fron gen2 6 lanes to gen3 8 lanes) its a bit of a meh upgrade overall.
Such a large price leap from 5000 to 6000 (especialy as most want a stack) that id want more than just higher passmark out of it.

Most wont even be near maxing the j5005 anyhow with the typical loads.

The ODROID H3+ seems to be a good deal with this CPU atm. It's $165 barebone (no ram, storage, case, or power supply). You can also buy their M.2 H3 Netcard to add 4 additional 2.5GbE for $47 for a total of 6 2.5GbE. But they are Realtek NICs though so probably better to virtualize for firewall installs.
