What is meant by "Track as Asset" option that is available when a new CI Type is created?
"Track as Asset" option lets you track CIs - under the newly configured CI type - as Assets. When this option is enabled, the added Configuration Item Type will also get listed as Product Type under Admin Tab - and when assets are added to this newly created Product Type, they'll in turn get reflected as CIs in CMDB.
"Track as Asset" option helps you classify the roles for Asset and CMDB manager - the asset module administrator will work on procuring assets and adding it to database, while the CMDB administrator will work on updating relationships for them.
