PrestaShop (vs. Magento)
- PrestaShop is easy to install, but doesn’t boast the same out-of-the-box features as Magento.
- PrestaShop has lower system requirements than Magento, but doesn’t have any of the compatibility issues PrestaShop has.
- PrestaShop is easier to customize, but has far less options for customization.
- PrestaShop does not have the community of users or the hugely successful official support team that makes Magento so attractive.
- PrestaShop software is much smaller (in MBs and files) than Magento.
- PrestaShop has emphasized its search capabilities since its inception, while this has been less important for Magento.
- Both are robust and have a web 2.0 feeling with out-of-the-box capabilities that surpass other open source eCommerce platforms.
- Magento offers more themes than PrestaShop.
- Magento’s SEO features are incomparable with any other eCommerce platform.
- Magento is more appropriate for a large scale eCommerce store.

Features are listed below, and the great benefit for Magento over Presta is its multi store functionality, and support community. Presta is much easier in use.  I advice to read this review for Both platforms here. http://www.shopping-cart-migration.com/useful-articles/43-prestashop/5361-battle-of-the-year-prestashop-vs-magento I find this post rather helpful in deciding which one is better

Hi
Magento is for ecommerce solution, it is more user friendly and can be maintained easily.

Both, PrestaShop and Magento Open Source eCommerce platforms .

Magento is the best option if you need out of the box features because PrestaShop offers limited services and functionality.

Magento is suitable for all sizes of businesses, while PrestaShop is the best option for small businesses.

Do note that while there is a free version of Magento, to run more than a small shop you will need to upgrade to a paid version. And Magento is notorious for consuming server resources -- if you use it, you may find yourself having to move from a shared server to a VPS/cloud or even to a dedicated server. Other than that, a lot of people like it.

I'm using a free version of Magento currently. Still checking it's features though. I'll check back later for updates.
