He,

Pro of proxy is that you are able to cache content on the proxy that multiple users are using and that you can control (depending on the proxy) what websites can be viewed and which can't be viewed. When using a proxy you are also doing some sort of NAT'ting btw. You can also (if needed) check which sites are being viewed when using a proxy server (yet again, depends on what you are using).

The only thin NAT does is hide the internal address from a machine when browsing the internet and only use the 1 external ip address your natting to.
