I am looking for a computer I can put in my family room for my three kids to use (second, fourth, fifth grades).
Primary uses will be homework and pre-teen computer activity.
I have been looking at Mac Minis, as we have moved our laptops over to the Mac platform and we have monitors and keyboards left over from now-retired PCs.
I am interested in opinions on which of the three mini options would make sense for my family:
I can locate the computer near our TV, so it could double as an entertainment system as well.
My specific question is whether OS X server is something that is worth buying (the third option has OS X server, while the other two do not) - I have not used it personally and am not clear on the benefits for a home configuration.
My wife does also work from home, so if there are home office benefits to OS X Server we could leverage those for her business. She runs a photography business and tends to have large data management issues due to all of the picture files she deals with.
Any input would be much appreciated.
