I want to add a couple of land speeders to my space marine force, but am unsure what one to get and how to equip them any advice, and i would be grateful.
Heavy Bolter + Assault Cannon is the best all-around.
HB for the anti-infantry. AC is great with the rending for anti-armor AND great for anti-infantry.
Or if you need one specialized for anti-tank, the HB/Multi-melta is good, too.
But I like to be a little more flexible, so I go with the HB/AC.
In the Space Marine Articles sticky there's a nice Tactica on landspeeders you should read, if you haven't yet.
HB + AC is the best bet all around.
To clear things up, there is no HB + MM speeder variant. The MM replaces the HB on the speeder.
The tactica goes through all the variants and explains what they are good for and how to use them. Check it out in the sticky topic called "Index of SM articles and FAQ's"

Efficiency VS Point Cost VS Ease Of Use - Your best bets:
1) Chaplain led Assault squad - 2 plasma pistols, powerfisted sergeant
2) 8 man Devastator squad - 4 missile launchers
3) Land Speeder Tornado - HB + AC
What's unfortunate is that there's also no multimelta-assault cannon varient, even though they occupy different slots on the landspeeder.
No, they can have: heavy bolter, multimelta, heavy bolter/assault cannon, multimelta/heavy flamer, and that's it (well, and the typhoon one with the shabby missile launcher).
And, of those, the HB/Ass. Cannon is by far the best.
You can have a multi-melta+Assault cannon with a Ravenwing LST. It costs nearlt 100pts though.
Every time you read this sig: a fairie dies!
yeah, heavy bolter, assault cannon all the way. I used to use the raven wing version with the MM and Asscannon, but then I started playing with it, and realized that the asscannon got just as manny tank kills/glances as the MM, so I switched.

Pssst.... give me kudos....
I have a multi melta and I deepstrike it beside annoying tanks. That usually works unless I miss which I do half of the time.(
