Well, that is true. In ideal lighting(studio for example), the benefits of RAW are not significant, if any. But lighting is not always ideal. Sometimes you have to pull detail from shadows or recover clipped highlight. This where raw shines. The biggest advantage of raw lies in its larger databit (12 or 14 vs 8-bit jpeg). Very useful for exposure adjustment. In fact I only use raw for exposure  related adjustment only.

Some people shoot raw + jpg. If picture come out okay, they delete the raw file for storage saving purpose. Not so okay, the open the raw file, push the exposure up to 3 stops, then delete the raw file.
