Folks, Is it possible to download 6.1.2 iOS on computer and update later iPad from computer? I am asking because I will have iPad in April. Probably iOS 6.1.3 will be only available to download , so I want to download only 6.1.2 cos' it is Jail-breakable. 6.1.3 will patch up exploits so my only chance is with 6.1.2 iOS.

No. Once the signing window is closed, you will not be able to upgrade (or in your case downgrade) to a non-current iOS version (at least given current technology).
But if you are getting your new iPad in early April and 6.1.3 is not coming out for another week or two or three, chances are your new iPad will have 6.1.2 loaded on it.
Um, so silly question since not obviously stated on front page. Can I or should I upgrade to 6.1.2 now that I have a JB 6.1.1? Or would I have to re-jailbreak once upgraded? In the past, usually there is a warning if such an upgrade is not advised...

Anyone report any substantial benefits? All I read was it fixes calendar bugs that can drain battery. Don't I have to redownload and reinstall all the tweaks and apps that I've already done since JBing 6.1.1?

The choice of whether to do it is entirely up to you
