more like 200 for the vac, 300 for the floor cleaner

i've always wanted one, too but i think they don't clean regular carpets that well. plus, i think of vacuuming as cross-training exercise for my next marathon!  :lol:

I got 2 for 100 like a year ago.  I love Woot.

On another note, I have still yet to battle them.

I would love to get one, but all the crap that ends up on my floor, I really don't think that it would be safe; for the roomba that is :lol:

Yea it's like 4" or 5".  I'm thinking it's closer to 4", but I'm not in that house on weekdays so I can't measure till the weekend.  It doesn't fit under my couches, but it does get under all of my tables and under my bed.  I can't imagine ever vacuuming under the bed if it wasn't for that thing.

Now if they'd only make one that did dusting.  That is what I really need.
