The Cisco Networking Academy currently uses 2950 and 3550 switches in the 
CCNP curriculum. I would pay the extra little bit of money, and go for the 
2950; versus the 2924. The XL series switches have reached "end of life" 
There are some features that you just won't be able to do with a 2924XL 
switch. Cisco considers the new 2950 switch to be more "enterprise like". 
Which may be a marketing strategy; but it does allow more features than the 
2924XL. I have the 2912XL, a 3550, and also a good ole cat 5505 in my lab.
