Excel 2013vs EXCEL 2010

I have excel 2010, it got me thinking to upgrade to 2013.

but my excel 2010 works fine.  

what do you think could be the best added functionality or advantage that can be convincing  to upgrade to 2013?  is it worth it?  all I know is about its flash fill . any other advantages?

If there is no objective difference (ie, new features that you need), I would stick with 2010.  It's been on the market longer so therefore has more bug fixes and patches.  Plus, do you want to dish out the money for the upgrade?

i do not have additional money to dish out.  all i want to know if i am deprived of any cool feature by not having 2013.
so if the whole the thing is the same. then i am going to stick with 2010

Besides Flash Fill (which is pretty cool, IMO), they've also added Slicers to Excel Tables, which was only available in PivotTables.

Another nice feature is that each workbook opens in its own window, behaving as separate instances of Excel.  Some folks like that side-by-side behavior and this allows it without the problems associated with multiple instances.

There's no change to the architecture or VBA.  But here are a couple of articles highlighting the differences:

Hi
I think all what you need is mentioned in above answers for you to make a decision.
I would like to mention one issue that I have come across & how to solve it

in 2013 I have come across many instances where, when creating a Pivot table it pops up with an error message. To solve this issue use Save As & save the file again & reopen it.
