We are planning the hardware for an Extreme fabric topology and were wondering whether the BEB switches
If they do would it make sense to purchase an X450-G2 and upgrade from Edge - Advanced - Core or
purchase a X460-G2 and upgrade from Advanced - Core?

There is a lot of content to learn about SPB and Extreme’s implementation with some fine extensions. Not only partner brochures (high-level without much details but field-proven numbers for time-to-service, failover time etc.), but also free video version of Campus Fabric certification content in the Dojo, Ed Koehler’s videos describing Fabric in the Dojo (and some on Youtube), and for example a new e-book in “… for dummies” style: https://learn.extremenetworks.com/Fabric-Networking-for-Dummies-eBook.html
I am looking forward to find some spare time to walk through this e-book, looks promising!
For hands-on experience it might be good to contact a reseller, distributor or Extreme SEs to catch some workshops.
Hope that helps,
