Summary of this Tutorial:
When you have www. in front of a site, it acts like a hostname which can help with DNS flexibility and a few other things.
While non-www domains do not have that advantage.
In terms of SEO there is no advantage to use one over the other and showing one over the other is completely personal preference.
It is important to be consistent with how you show your site.
In Google Webmaster tools you can set your preference under site settings.
If you use SEO by Yoast it automatically sets canonical URLs in your header that tells Google your preference.
