Your second sentence seems a bit odd. I think it should be 'Education is very important IN our lives' instead of 'Education is important FOR our lives.' It almost seems that you are implying that we all need education to live and that if we didn't have it, we'd all die.

They are very fast. [Use these or those only if we are talking about certain computers already mentioned. The first sentence refers to all computers.] Education is very important for our lives. [Since 'our' is plural, we are talking about plural lives] They are used to perform functions fast [Refer to the first sentence - same reasoning] By the way, it might be better as: They are used to perform functions at very high speed.
