There are two big differences.
The first is that you have access to all the Adobe desktop applications in the Master Collection and additional services like Typekit and Business Catalyst. Also the Adobe touch apps integrate directly with the creative cloud storage and website. You can see the list of things from here https://creative.adobe.com/apps. And here is a comparitive charthttp://www.adobe.com/products/creativecloud/buying-guide.html.
The second thing you get is that we understand all of the Adobe file types. What I mean by that is you will get image renditions of files from products like InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop. In fact you can navigate each page/spread of an InDesign file, or each art board of an Ilustrator file. With Photoshop files you can turn layers on and off. You get color swatch and fonts listed for files. All of this from the website. So someone without the Adobe desktop products installed can just view the files from the browser.
And of course more things are coming. You can read more here on this Adobe blog http://blogs.adobe.com/creativecloud/coming-soon-to-creative-cloud/.
"I already use Dropbox or another file storage solution. Why should I use the sync and storage features of Creative Cloud instead?
In addition to file storage features, Creative Cloud has unique capabilities designed to support creative work that make it a very different solution than Dropbox.
These capabilities include the ability to:
View thumbnails and larger previews of creative files in the browser to make them easier to find visually
Change layer states of PSD files and step through Illustrator art boards and InDesign and PDF pages in the browser
Easily share files for review via the web browser
Convert creative files to PDF to share them with clients and colleagues
Sync directly with Adobe Touch Apps‡ and desktop applications to enable a seamless workflow between tablet and desktop"
