Your answer depends on your requirements.

Do you need to share files?
Do you need a central location for storing files so they can be backed up easily.?
Do you need security to control who has what access to shared files?
DO you need to control access to the shared printer and fax?

Answer those questions and you will figure it out. Thats the point of doing your own homework.
