Looking for advice/opinion(s) really...

May have enough to make a small investment into hobby/tech for my household.

I am currently considering -
1. Getting motorised dish fixed/retuned (priority)
2. Getting a local card so I can share (otherwise not much point doing first item on list).
3. Some tech whereas to run a server (C/s, maybe small web/file server)

Point 3 is where I am looking for advice really, I am considering getting a raspberry pi2 and maybe a zero (due to low cost and other hardware would be needed for pi2 anyway so not much additional cost in one or more zero's).
Also for server, was thinking maybe a HP Proliant (or maybe an old PC and get a cheap NAS Drive)?

Anyway would welcome suggestions on this point and what others have and use?
