Diagnosing a failed compressor shouldn't be too hard for a shop if they actually put a set of gauges on it.
But I have some questions. What happens if you manually put the transmission in to 1st gear and drive at like 3500rpm? If it's a compressor problem, then it should be cooling out of the vents.
But if doing 70mph in 4th gear is what it take for the AC to cool, then i'm leaning towards some type of air flow restriction up front at the condenser (the little radiator looking thing in front of your real radiator)
