Server for a small office

Specs: Windows 7
I have a small office with 2 desk top PCs, and a lap top. currently all of our data is stored on my desk top and shared through a LAN. I am planning on getting a server and was wondering if a home media server such as the HP - 1TB MediaSmart Server would suffice. I have looked at the Dell servers but they seem to be for much larger networks. Also the server operating systems on them are quite expensive.
The server would be used to store data for our accounting, drafting, estimating, contact management etc...
Is there anything in the more expensive servers that we would need that would not be available on the Home server? Also, what are your thoughts on Ubuntu server OS?

Yes, MS server software & licensing is quite expensive & Ubuntu takes alot of Linux knowledge.

If you are just storing data, an NAS device might be enough for you.
