That depends on where in the world you are, The cost can vcary enourmously from one country to another and wheater the goods have to be imported or bought locally.

If this is a homework question you will be best basing you estimates on local consitions.

Installation costs may vary greatly depending on the difficulty of installation, performance requirements, code requirements, etc.

Also the useage. Do you really need a server? With a business you may need a server, especially if you are running a networked system program and need a uniform file system and back up, but with a home and some small office uses you may just need a pier to pier network run through a decent router. The desktops should be hard wired and the portable ones will need a wireless set up, but they are completely compatible and if your shared storage needs are moderate, you can add a large hard drive to one of the computers and make it a shared drive (you can do the same to another computer and set up an automatic back up to that one).
In this situation you could use a decent router, a switch to expand the ports, and a wireless router plugged into the primary router. All internet should go through the primary router.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
