If you've been jonesing for the cleaning power of the Root Cyclone technology that gives Dyson vacuums their punch, but without the massive body that comes along with it, your wish has been granted. The Dyson Slim ($470) packs all the power of a full-size Dyson into a sleek, svelte, light (less than 16 pounds) package that features a flexible foot ball wheel, an extension hose that pulls out from the handle, and a lifetime HEPA filter to keep your air as clean as your floors.
