pressure vs. slow cooker

I have been reading this list for about a month and greatly enjoying it.
Thank you to all.

I am considering investing in either a pressure cooker or a slow cooker.
Lorna Sass's cookbooks are a great argument for choosing a pressure cooker,
but I'm still not sure.  What I would like is an easier way to prepare
beans.  Are slow cookers useful for this?  Can I start soaked beans with
other ingredients in the morning and have a meal ready for dinner?  Are
there any good cookbooks for vegan meals in slow cookers?  Does anyone have
information about nutrient loss?  Is it better to cook food faster and
hotter or longer at less heat?

My thanks in advance for any and all information you can provide.
