I would not deploy that today if I had another option. The Atom D525 is the processor used in the 2200. R81.20 no longer includes drivers for the SATA controllers in its most common chipset. 4 GB of RAM is okay for a firewall you expect to be lightly used, but is too little to make an effective standalone system. 32 GB SSD is way too small for a firewall.

The 3600 uses an Atom C3558 and the 3800 uses an Atom C3758. Those are likely to be supported for much longer. They also support ECC RAM.

You can always run Check Point's software in a VM, which moves most of the hardware compatibility concerns from Check Point's OS to the hypervisor. Broader hardware compatibility might bring in some boxes which Check Point wouldn't support directly.
