Considering your looking to get into vmware (perhaps esxi), and redhat I would look into a thinkpad. Even a cheaper used one if you don't need a lot of power. They have very good Linux support and almost all have official redhat drivers I believe. Make a post here with what you need. Good luck.

Unfortunately, I just have taken classes on esxi briefly and hypervisor when esxi was new. The only vmware I use now is workstation on my p50 for diagnostic os's (some flavors of bootables for data migration help in the field) I noticed you are taking a course perhaps ask your instructor what they would recomend, but again ask the reddit community I linked as well. Also check out this one for a good way to format what you need?
