    I have at home a 2008 MBP, 2014 rMBP, two iphones, two ipads and 2 ipod touch.

    I want to buy the base model MacMini to install the server app so I can save my bandwidth when I update all my devices from apple updates.

    I don't plan on creating network bigger than all the devices that I mentioned before.

    Will the base model be enough for this need or I need to get the mid level one?

    General requirements for the Yosemite OS X Server are https://www.apple.com/osx/server/specs/
    Yosemite OS X requirements https://www.apple.com/osx/how-to-upgrade/

    If either of your MacBooks meet those requirements, may want to consider installing the Server app on a MacBook as iOS/OS X updates don't come out all that frequently.

    If you want to use a MacMini for things besides updates for the other Apple devices, then it may be worth getting one.
