My newest mid-tower also needs to run Wheezy for the video chip (Intel Core i7 2600S). I also disliked Gnome 3, went through the same desktop evaluation process, and ended up at XFCE.

I then installed VirtualBox, set up a VM with debian-6.0.7-i386 with the default graphical user interface (Gnome 2), and moved my desktop apps and data there. Now I can easily export/import my desktop VM to any hardware that supports VirtualBox. :-)
