Everything is graphically smoother, and everything looks nicer. Imo just how much faster everything is makes it worth updating.

you are right! is more faster! – Nacho Mendieta May 4 '13 at 19:50

faster, lighter weight, and lots of bug fixes, but only supported for 9 months, while 12.04 is supported for 5 years
If you do upgrade, there are issues with HDMI audio and Nvidia drivers, to work around this use the mainline kernel (3.8.9 or 3.9rc8)

Dash, HUD, Lenses, Launcher is bloody faster.

I read somewhere ( OMG!Ubuntu maybe) that Unity is now tested on a smartphone. That smartphone is taken as a reference to tackle performance issues.
