What Server should I purchase?

Last Modified: 2012-08-11
Hi Experts,

I would like to purchase a used Server for me to learn more about Windows Server 2008,
I could install it on my virtual box but I would like to practice installation on the real Server.
I know I may have to purchase the OS plus a few seats. I browse on Ebay and found different Servers very cheap.
Can you please advise me what to look for before getting one, I do not want to spend a lot of money?.
