Recommendation on a Intel NUC

Newegg has a sale on a 6th generation i5 Intel NUC for $250. I bought a 5th gen NUC several years ago and it’s served me well for years but I wanted another machine for testing VMs and Containers (ubuntu server, pi hole, hass, deluge, wordpress, etc).

They’re currently up to 8th gen and even the 7th gen boxes are about double the price. I’m wondering if it’s worth the deal or if I should just bite the bullet and get the current ones.
