I'm still wondering if this will compete with the N5k (we just added a handful for top-of-rack/core use).
the 6001 -- most definitely.
the 6004 can -- as it will be a very dense 40gb aggregator -- but due to the throughput through the box -- it can also be used as a small aggregation.
its all based on use case, price, and features required.
you'll want to look at the deeper details (mac limits, routing, tcam, etc) for if it supports what you need it to.
just because its newer -- doesn't always mean better.
