just get slotted, they're around $20 cheaper than cross drilled/slotted and they work just as well.
i paid $196 for 2x front rotors just dba slotted ones.

probably fronts, the rears don't usually go, plus they don't do the majority of the braking.

aren't x-drilled ones prone to falling apart under hard braking?

Yeah crossed drilled are good for around town driving, if you want to go more serious about driving like mountain pass runs etc... it is not recommended to go crossed drilled. I have personally seen one shatter under some very extreme braking, lucky it was the last corner ;)
