-ability to 'disable' most system apps, and 'uninstall' bloatware such as Kindle, Blockbuster, Let's Golf! etc. (WITHOUT ROOT)
-screenshot function built-in (although i already paid for an app, this is still pretty cool)
-widget previews before you add.
i think the cons still outweigh the pros. but if you've got more pros, throw them here, because for the most part, we're stuck with ics, so lets make the best of it.
