iRobot Roomba 530
Dust. Bunnies. They are a big, huge, pain in the behind. Hardwood floors are lovely but can be tough to maintain, and sometimes a Swiffer just can't get the job done. After our impassioned Twitter plea about what to do with the pesky little critters, the resounding response was: Roomba! Roomba! There are remanufactured versions available for under $200, which is about as much as you'd spend for a mid-range vacuum cleaner. Viva la robot revolution!
