Macbook Air or a Dell (PC)

Let me start by saying, my only use for the computer would be to get online using the internet and Microsoft Word and Office products for work. I will not be using it for video editing or gaming.
I have owned a Dell XPS M140 that I have and still works, but is in bad shape since 2006. My wife had a HP DV1000 that no longer works for a year now. And my aunt gave me a Dell Latitude that has stopped working with a broken hard drive last month.
My brother gave me a Macbook (white shell) five years ago and the hard drive went out and now doesn't work. I'm thinking of purchasing a new hard drive for it but the Apple Store said they have stopped making parts for my model.
So, I wanted to know if I should buy a harddrive and repair the Mac, or should I purchase a Macbook Air or another PC. I don't think we need a pro.
Any thoughts? Thanks.
