    The main reason is to sync calendars between 3 macs. Google Calendar is not cutting (synching) properly.

    I'd wait for iCloud instead of spending the several hundred on a server. JW, what about Google's syncing isn't working for you?

    If it's the same Google Calendar being access from 3 different machines you are doing something wrong.

    I use Snow Leopard Server to sync Calendar and Address Book across Macs and iOS devices and VPN to access the server when outside. The downside is some places VPN is blocked.

    I've experimented with Google instead. It seems to do fine with calendars but falls flat with the address book because it won't handle the categories (subfolders for different people).

    iCloud is really a wait and see. Potentially it could be the best choice. It's coming out soon so defer your decision! In any case I really can't see buying a Mac just for a calendar server.
