Hi, I'm going to get the new MacBook Pro and I know that Lion comes with a server built in, but what can I do with a server? Lol.

The current MBPs come with Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, not Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. Lion will be released in Summer 2011.
Some official information about Mac OS X Server: http://www.apple.com/server/macosx/
Some official information about Lion's server capabilities (you need to scroll down a bit): http://www.apple.com/macosx/lion/

On a portable, not much. Usually the point of a server is to have it running at all times for access from other devices. The point of a laptop is to be able to close the lid and take it someplace.
