Fixed or swing keel, which is better?

I''m new to sailing and am looking at boats to buy. Along with the many other questions that go with this, I was asked if I wanted a fixed, swing, or centerboard keel. Wanting something that I might want to trailer, I thought swing. I was told there is a difference between the way these sail. Can anyone tell me what differences there are and why? Thanks...Tim
