    So I've heard Lion features an option that allows you to track your stolen (or not) Apple devices but the only option I get on iCloud is Find my iPhone.
    I have Lion 10.7.3, location services are enabled and so is the Find my Mac feature.

    What am I doing wrong?

    How do I do that? I thought that by signing up for iCloud and checking the "find my mac" checkbox would take care of everything...

    go to system preferences and click on iCloud and you have to link it up and check what you want to back up etc.

    to actually use the tracking you have to go to iCloud.com and log in and click find my iPhone and all of your idevices pop up.

    It also won't work if you've deleted your Lion restore partition.

    Indeed you have to use the feature find my iPhone. I used this last night on my iPhone to find my MBA. Of course your Laptop has to be connected to wifi at the time to locate.
