To machine rear rotors or get a new set?

My rear brakes need service, and I have a choice:

1. Machine rear rotors and get a new set of OEM pads from a dealer.
2. Machine rear rotors and get a new set of Hawk HPS pads.
3. Get a new set of rear after-market rotors (Centric or Pilenga) and a set of OEM pads from a dealer.
4. Get a new set of rear after-market rotors (Centric or Pilenga) and a set of Hawk HPS pads.

If there's virtually no difference in price between the options - what would you do?
If you pick option#3 or #4 - what rotors would you recommend?

Thanks!

Your rear rotors might be not serviceable. Did the shop say they could turn them? I'd go with new coated motors.
