I'm always wondering what are people doing in these homelabs that they need this type of hardware. I worked for an MSP and sometimes people would take home an old DL380 or something, but it always seemed like a waste.

With a 16GB NUC I can easily provision 6-7 small vms without an issues which is enough for general self-host and exam prep. With docker you can run a simple instance of just about anything and leave it up all the time.

Maybe I have to admit my purchase is not entirely rational. But it's fun!

Well I can't argue with that.
