Help with Canon SD800 IS replacement...

Hi all...

I need a little help replacing my wife's circa 2007 SD800 IS.

I have to say it's been an amazing P&S camera....has taken so much abuse by my kids over the years...lived in my wife's purse for half a decade (without a case), been dropped so many times, has most of the plastic coating worn off...but it kept taking great pictures...

I'm thinking about the 320 HS, or possible the 530 HS (longer reach, but possibly more fragile with the extended lens).

The problem is, I read so many reviews that the touch screen is cumbersome, and there is a lot of talk about these newer cameras failing prematurely.

I guess I'm wondering if I find a an older model before touchscreens and wifi, what would be the latest model since the SD800 that will still have it's simplicity and ruggedness?
