We are a small office and currently have a Dell Power Connect 2124 24 port switch. I would like to upgrade to a 48 port switched seif managed.. Would the Dell PC 2748 suit our needs? Or can I use what we have and only route the PCs and laptops to the new giga switch?

You already have a perfectly good working gigabit switch. The options on the table are to acquire an addtional 24 port gigabit switch and connect them using an expansion or uplink port, or acquire a new 48 port gigabit switch; however, this option does not make good use of the investment already made. Most switches are self managed by the way, except for layer-3 switches which require additional configuration to support some routing features.
