stay with r22 or upgrade to R410A

I have a 2 ton r22 bryant outside unit and and a International comfortmaker air handler. The outisde unit is shot. the air handler is about 4 years old and is in real good shape. my question is should I stick with r22 unit and keep my air handler or should I replace both units with R410A unit

If I stay with r22 what would be a good reliable cheap unit?
If I go with R410A what would be a good reliable cheap unit?

also what is the life expectancy of an air handler?

If you will be in the home say for 10 years go for a good a good unit with a 15 seer on the unit. That means its best to get a match set inside and out. Not add on to what you have.
