which computer as a server?

Your post


I am working on a fmp -dataase, but are considering the server in addition - mostly due to security and backup issues because a database will be dealing with patient-information. 

Which computer should I chose to host the filemaker server? I am considering buying a macbook pro to keep both my fmp and my filemaker server - is that a good option? - or would it be more flexible to buy a small stationary (mac mini with server), and a small laptop in addition. Can a access data from a windows pc if both the fmp and the fmserver is loacted on a macmini?

I would greatly appricated any advice, 

Thank you,
