Dead Macbook: how do I get the data off?

My MacBook (mid-2007) just crapped out. I can't afford a pro data extraction fix. Is there any other option?

The hard drive is dead and Apple says they've had luck extracting the applications but nothing from the user file.
Also, if I want my bad hard drive, Apple says they have to reverse their repairs and put the old drive in. I can;t have the fixed laptop AND the old hard drive. I've heard people fighting about this at the Genius Bar before. Is there any way around this?
