Ive just rooted my note on 4.1.2 and i find my note to be quick and reliable, im just thinking is it really worth unrooting my perfectly working note 8 to update and get what seems a worse experience, then have to reroot it seems like alot of faffing about for no real improvement.
What are the new additions in 4.2 that make it worth while? (i have no use for multiuser).

If you are happy with your Note then I would suggest staying where you are for now.
Especially if you use the Multimedia Dock. I believe the Spen issue has been or is being corrected in the custom ROMS however Stock ROMS are waiting for an official update.
For me personally, I decided to jump to 4.2.2 since I do not use the Spen and the UI improvements are noticeable enough that I found it hard to go back to 4.1.2 once I got used to them. The Music widget on the lock screen is my most favorite new feature.
Rooting 4.2.2 is exactly the same as 4.1.2 it takes only a minute or two. Good Luck on your decision.
