According to their website:

Puppet Enterprise packages the power of Puppet for ease of installation, maintenance and scalability

  • Simplified integration & installation
  • Tuned for scalaibility
  • All components tested and approved by Puppet Labs engineers
  • Built-in support as part of your paid license
  • Your Puppet deployment is always up to date

Puppetlabs provides a break down of the differences here: http://puppetlabs.com/puppet/enterprise-vs-open-source

The most noticeable difference is support, a much improved web UI and as of 3.x better ability to view what happened during a puppet run.
