Burton has completely different camber/rocker profiles then Lib does. If you're coming off a camber Burton board chances are you'll be riding C2 or maybe a C3 profile from Lib which is a completely different feeling.
The construction is also different. Lib does not wrap the metal edges around the tip/tail and I find the topsheet gets damaged easily especially in these areas, not a big deal at all in my books, but some people might not like that. Also you'll step into the world of Magnatraction, which is awesome but also completely different compared to Burton. One thing I don't like is that Lib seems to be making more and more boards with the TNT extruded base as opposed to their sintered bases, not sure I like that.
Both companies make solid boards, personally I kind of want a 2013 Burton Juice Wagon, maybe end of the season I'll pick one up.
