2007 and 2013? You can probably take the reasons for going to 2010 and apply them to 2013.
Without knowing about the environment it is impossible to answer.

For example, if you have a complex CCR with 1500 users then I would say the increased density of mailboxex per server would be interest, along with the DAG functionality.

If you have a high number of remote workers using OWA, then the OWA improvements are worth it.

For 2013 specific, modern public folders and the web administration are the main reasons for most people, as well as the storage performnce improvements.

The major downside though is the lack of third party support - still.

Thanks Sembee,

So I guess from financial point of view the benefits is not that big leap from 2007 into 2013, we are medium shop with 300 users mailbox.
