I have the exact same quandary myself. My wife's practice is quite small and we only have two iMacs right now. The reception iMac is working as the MacPractice server and never really seems that taxed. We're looking at outfitting the second operatory and I was considering moving to a Mac Mini for a server too.
Right now, the software seems to be very responsive, with the exception of loading x-rays. We usually have 4 BWs and 2 PAs per x-ray layout, and it takes a good 20 seconds for the images to load from the reception computer. It's not unusable, and I can't see it getting worse with a dedicated Mac Mini doing the server end.
I'm curious if you made a choice one way or the other on this decision?
Cheers!iMacs & MacBook Pros., Mac OS X (10.6.5)

This is late but our office found Mac Minis to be too slow. The software is great and we have used Mac Pro towers and recently iMacs running @ 3.2 MHz. It does fine but we are going back to Mac Pro Towers because they process digital RG faster.
We are using one iMac server with 11 workstations.
