With dies you can cut bigger shapes, and it's much less expensive to have multiple nesting sizes of dies than the same number of punches. You can also get much more intricate shapes to work with dies than you can with punches.

That being said, I prefer working with punches. Quicker to line up an image and punch it out, quicker to punch multiples of the same shape, and more portable. I don't see myself getting rid of the punches I have - and I just got myself a new Fiskars hexagon squeeze punch this weekend.
