It all depends on the operating system, and software you are using - presumably something like squid and more importantly how many users, how much bandwidth etc.  i.e. a normal desktop / laptop would do for a few users with light browsing

If it's business critical, it should be a cluster (at least 2 servers), redundant PSUs and (gigabyte) NICs, either big fast local disks or fibre attached SAN disks for logging and cache.  The more RAM the better.
