Motor power is very important, usually the more expensive blenders have more power.  Power isn't everything though but you should get one with at least 600 watts or it's more than likely to burn out.  You don't need more than 1000 watts unless you're blending hundreds of drinks per week.

A pulse setting is a way for you to control the blades at different speeds.  If you want the blade to spin at a certain speed but only want it to run for a quick burst then you would use the pulse setting.  It's a good way to control how much the blender processes.
