Default Should I fix 60GB PS3 or buy Slim

Just like the title says. I'm trying to figure which one I should do? I play a few PS2 games but mostly PS3. I do like the quicker Blu-Ray load times. So should save some money and fix the system for $150 by sony or should I go for the $299 slim? I know the slim will save me on money in the long. So if you guys were in my shoes what would you do?

Fix the 60 and use the money you saved on a 360. That way you can enjoy all HD gaming.

Look to see if I could find someone to fix it localy. If its a common issue they probably could fix it for under $100.

And this isn't smackdown unless your starting another thread to say the PS3 failure rate is horrible.

Buy a Slim and then send it to me. Then fix your 60GB.
