Portals contain many portlets. Think of a portal as a container for portlets and portlets as containers for content.

For example, go to: Portal w/ Portlets Page

Think of the page as the portal, and each section "Search technical library," "Spotlight," as a portlet that each serve unique purposes.

A portal server delivers content to users through individual content containers called portlets.

Here's a pretty thorough tutorial that demonstrates the benefits of a portal, and what exactly a portal is. It's WebSphere Portal specific, but the content pretty much applies to all portals.

What is a Portal Server? How is a portal different from a web page? Customization & Personalization
