    I would like to purchase a mini for the expressed purpose of running it as an iTunes server.

    I have 4 AppleTv 3's and currently use a windows HTPC running itunes and home sharing to stream my quite large library to those AppleTv's. This solution works ok, iTunes does freeze every so often but the issue is that the HTPC does suck down a lot of power.

    I would like to power the mini around the clock.

    Which mini should I get?

    Thanks

    Almost any of them will work for that. I personally use a 2012 Mac mini and I have a 3TB external drive attached with all the iTunes content. It works well.

    Can you stream multiple movies to multiple devices simultaneously?

    Yes. I have two apple tvs and have had my kids watching different movies on each.
