Lion Server

Was wondering if there's any benefits to running Lion Server with 1-2 computers running on it? I just got a MacBook Air and was debating if I should turn my iMac into the Lion Server, but I know next to nothing about what / if any benefits to doing this?

What do you want the Server to do?

I did that with my old mac mini. I don't need a server but it is a perfect way to learn and for $50 why not?
