$145 to repair a digital camera, or just get a new one?

So my digital camera got all wonky, as shown by the Westercon photos.

The quote from Olympus to repair it is $144.

I'm tempted to just pay more for a new camera. But has the market improved much since the SP-350?

I need fairly cheap (I'm usually point-n-shoot) but I liked that the SP-350 could be fully manual, and even had a hotshoe for external flashes... and normal AA batteries. The only gotcha was that it was slower than a dead dog on a hot day.

Anything better these days?
