GPT supports addressing more than 2TBs of space without the need for advanced formatting, as well as native support for advanced formatting.  Additionally GPT supports very large disk capacities specifically (in the ZB/billions of TB range).


Additionally, GPT drives provide redundancy, in the form of writing the the GPT header and partition table at the beginning and end of the disk (this helps prevent the "RAW" issue, along with other issues). 



Aside from these, the only desernable difference is the boot drive. BIOS based systems (or legacy boot modes) require MBR disks, while UEFI usually require GPT disks. 


For storage though, there is no noticeable difference for "daily use". Other that stated limitations of MBR.
