Should I upgrade IBM x3200 M2 from ESXi 4.1 to ESXi 5.1

Hi,

Just a quick question.

I have a very small environment what has a IBM x3200 M2 Server, i am running on it although not supported i know ESXi Free edition Version 4.1.0 Build 26.260247.

There is only one VM on it which is a Windows 2003 SBS server and i keep one VM ot running as a backup.

Is there any real reason to upgrade this version of ESXi to either a later v4.1 or to 5.1

Thanks Adam
