Hey,

Have a look at this Wikipedia article about tripods, specifically the heads:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tripod_(photography)#Heads

EDIT: copy and paste the whole link into the browser address bar. There seems to be a problem with the brackets in the link - but they should be there so you'll have to copy it in. 8)

What kind of shots do you want to take with the tripod? And you'll probably need to get one thats compatible with the tripod you buy (or just buy it with the tripod from the start).

Ball heads are the quickest to set up but they sacrifice stability and accuracy of positioning.

Yep Graham's right - a ball head will allow you to set up quickly however, you may find that the 3 way gives you more stability, which you'll need if you're doing a lot of macro/night shots. You'll need to make fine adjustments to make it accurate but the 3 way head should allow for greater stability. And you'll still be able to pan effectively (although this is often easier hand-held anyway).

Do you leave the shutter open longer for macro shots?

You can if you want to, just make sure the subject doesn't move.
