My Questions are:
- Is Hardware requirements—database requirement below enough?
Which software requirements I should use:
- Single server with built-in database,
- Server farm with a single server in the farm or,
- Server farm with multiple servers in the farm
for a educational purpose. Each of these has different hardware requirement. (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262485.aspx)
The reason I buy a new hardware is to increase my knowledge for SharePoint development.
