Elegance is often a matter of individual taste (it lies in the eyes of the
beholder?), but a possible way is
datanew:=If[data[[1,1]]==data[[2,1]],{data[[1,1]],Mean[{data[[1,2]],data[[2,2]]}]},data]
data={{{1,2,3},4},{{1,2,3},5}}{{{1,2,3},4},{{1,2,3},5}}
datanew{{1,2,3},9/2}
data={{{1,1,3},4},{{1,2,3},5}}{{{1,1,3},4},{{1,2,3},5}}
datanew{{{1,1,3},4},{{1,2,3},5}}
