Static builds the pages a head of time, and the server just reads them off the disk. They only change the next time you build.

Dynamic is done in "real time". The server creates the page -- EACH AND EVERY -- time a person requests it. IF hits, username, or other stuff changes between requests, the page is updated "dynamically". This uses a LOT more server resources, especiall on busy sites. A site that is "busy" and handling it with static pages, could crash if dynamic pages were tried, and an over burdoned server could get a break if static pages were used (and builds were done in the off-hours).

It's a choice. Depends on how much CPU/server you have, and how you want to go.
