I'm just too hard on equipment

I've had this little fuji-film digital camera for a few years now. It has been robuster than I had hoped. I've biked it around in the rain, dropped it while rollerblading, and carted it around with my laptop. Then this saturday while have dinner (of all the unactve pass-times) the flash gave out. It still takes pictures, but a camera without a flash isn't all that useful. Now I have to buy a new one (ahhhh rebirth). Any suggestions. I'm looking at the Nikon Coolpix and the Kodak DX series.
