I'm wondering if anyone can give me their opinion on whether or not the below list of equipment is good enough for a CCNP/CCIE Lab.

1 Cisco 3640 w/ 5 T1 WICs
4 Cisco 1841, Advanced Enterprise IOS, T1 WIC in each
6 Cisco 3560-48TS, Advanced Enterprise IOS
1 Cisco ASA5505

Is it missing anything crucial?

Thanks!

The answer is yes for CCNP, but not neccessarily for the CCIE.  Which CCIE track are you interested in persuing?  You may be ok if you are only going for Routing and Switching.  However, if you are looking into Voice, Security or wireless; refer to the links below.

I got my CCNP by studying with much less than this, so you should be in good shape there.
