I edited the question to clarify context and why - in general, not just for us - in such a situation is desirable to keep "older" gear for a little more.

re "old and limited", they're still pretty good (for our workloads): 24GB of ram and the exact same network cards (with iSCSI accelerator) shipped in newer Dell gear - we use iSCSI SANs for storage. The only downside, if ESXi 5.5 works, is that they'll limit us to EVC L1. But rationale is: they've worked great so far with previous versions of ESXi, still have 1+ years of ProSupport, they should keep working for a little more. We just have to choose between keeping newer gear at 5.1 or trying 5.5 on "older" gear.
