Well, if ICE isn't a critical requirement, why not look at the Polaroid (or
the Canon, which has an equivalent to ICE, and scans at 4000 dpi) which
several people have suggested? And why, if the Nikon is required do you
resist the suggestions for a second machine solely for supporting the
scanner? Several options on how to do this inexpensively have been offered,
but you continue the refrain of how much trouble it would be to port your
apps to the new computer. Why bother moving them, if you're content with the
machine you have otherwise?
