Hybrid suspension fork - what can I replace it with?

My wife has a hybrid style bike with about a 10lb+ suntour suspension fork on the front. It also uses a threaded headset (1 1/8"). Bike was bought new in 2008, so it isn't all that old.

My question...is there anything that I can replace that POS fork with? It doesn't really need to be a suspension fork, either. Currently the bike has V-brakes on it, which are good enough. And it runs normal 700c wheels.

I didn't know if a cyclocross style of fork would be needed with a different headset or if I'd need something else altogether. Hate to just replace the bike as she loves it otherwise, but she could do without the weight of the fork.

Thanks.
