laptop display slowly dying on me - repair or replace (with PC or Mac)?

The screen on my 4-year old laptop is finally going to give up the ghost in the next few days (hours!). I'm after some advice what to do next:

1. Pocket says, try to get the screen repaired (and the wireless card replaced as that doesn't work either)!

2. Head says replace with another Windows-based laptop which can be had at a very reasonable price.

3. Heart says, buy a Macbook as they look beautiful!

Up until now I've been fully wedded to Windows based computing, but love the look of Macs.

Thoughts anyone?
