If we start speaking about special cell types, one can come up with several 
other examples: Red blood cells can do without a nucleus,
All non-plant cells can do without chloroplasts/amyloplasts/chromoplasts
most cells can do without peroxisomes, but in all these cases we are talking 
about either special cells or special organels

But I don't think, that was really the question.

As far as cells in general are concerned if I were such a cell, I wouldn't 
like to have to make the choice!
